The Federation of Brillnuck is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Archibald Montague with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.975 billion Brillnish hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Brillnish economy, worth a remarkable 5,878 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 392,587 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from Prime Minister Archibald Montague's childhood, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, organ donation is compulsory, and Brillnuck is increasingly belligerent on the international stage. Crime is totally unknown. Brillnuck's national animal is the Red Deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Brillnuck is ranked 573rd in the world and 1st in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,899.75 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
