Brockton Bay

Population10.952 billion


The Protectorate of Brockton Bay is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 10.952 billion Brockton Bayesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 24.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Brockton Bayesian economy, worth 295 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 27,026 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, voting is voluntary, Brockton Bay's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brockton Bay's national animal is the Scarab.

Brockton Bay is ranked 103,808th in the world and 2nd in Aura Hyperia for Highest Crime Rates, with 3.3 Crimes Per Hour.

Most Stationary: 7,412th
