The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, public floggings, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.553 billion Brotherhood of nodians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of sarajevo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherhood of nodian economy, worth a remarkable 9,385 trillion tiberium crystals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 603,454 tiberium crystals, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,709,470 per year while the poor average 83,062, a ratio of 32.6 to 1.

The nation is famous for having one of the world's largest veinhols hunting institutions, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, and the best fashion comes straight to the high street from sweatshops all across the globe. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Brotherhood of nod's national animal is the veinhols, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is order of kane.

Brotherhood of nod is ranked 21st in the world and 2nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Corrupt Governments, with 1,358.36 Kickbacks Per Hour.
