The Golden Empire of Breen is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Scarlet Empress with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.707 billion Breen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yin. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Breen economy, worth a remarkable 1,283 trillion Yuan a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 224,980 Yuan, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Breen's national animal is the Red-Crowned Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Innumerable Gods and Spirits.

Breen is ranked 131,296th in the world and 31st in CISB for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 34.1 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
