The Democratic States of Brivlan is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic population of 358 million Brivlanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Brivlanian economy, worth 16.5 trillion Brivlanish Pounds 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 Retail, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 45,984 Brivlanish Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Military units are often seen arguing over which one is truly favored by the gods, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, and a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brivlan's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brivlan is ranked 112,300th in the world and 3,486th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 16.5 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
