The Republic of Brotherland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Joan Ragno with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.184 billion Brotherlandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brotherland City. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,516 trillion Songs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,505 Songs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Brotherlandian flag qualifies you for citizenship, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. Crime is totally unknown. Brotherland's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fratracism.

Brotherland is ranked 3,049th in the world and 98th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,242.19 Tourists Per Hour.
