The Kingdom of Brettenia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Joseph Burke with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working population of 2.606 billion Brits 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, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Charity. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brettenian economy, worth 430 trillion Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,305 Royals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Polite commuters on the High Charity Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, Brettenia has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brettenia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Brettenia is ranked 5,100th in the world and 306th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.62 Years.
