The Empire of Brecland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Victoria with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, devout population of 9.578 billion Breclanders have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Brecish economy, worth 871 trillion shillings a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,994 shillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Brecland, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, and bike rage is all the rage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brecland's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is united Christianity.

Brecland is ranked 25,998th in the world and 1,381st in Balder for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 71.42 Effective Tax Rate.
