The Smash Hit Movie Version of Brocklandia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the biggest squirrels you ever saw with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.835 billion Brocklandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darkest Surburbia. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brocklandian economy, worth a remarkable 4,899 trillion goobers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 274,719 goobers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, the nation is so apathetic that Brocklandians can barely find the energy to bring new issues to the government, and The biggest squirrels you ever saw's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Brocklandia's national animal is the giant dancing howler monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is --uhm--maybe apathy--or whatever.

Brocklandia is ranked 78,620th in the world and 37th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,700.59 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
