Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population5.375 billion


The Republic of Brendownia is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.375 billion Brendownians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brendownian economy, worth 529 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,555 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brendownia's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brendownia is ranked 811th in the world and 549th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 164 Valid Endorsements.
