The Great Congregation of Brethren is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Archdolphop Snow Warslayer with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.442 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thriwich. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The powerhouse Brethren economy, worth 412 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. Average income is an impressive 119,903 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and Thriwich spends billions upgrading public transport. 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 1,857th in the world and 85th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 51,503 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
