The Great Congregation of Brethren is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archdolphop Snow Warslayer with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 2.978 billion Brethren are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thriwich. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The powerhouse Brethren economy, worth 354 trillion tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 118,872 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", government employees from Brethren dominate international lumberjack competitions, and teachers are skilled at leaving no evidence of child cruelty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brethren's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dolphinism.

Brethren is ranked 201,823rd in the world and 8,755th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -14.35 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
