The United Kingdom of Brototh is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by June Morris with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.152 billion Brotothians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brotothian economy, worth 169 trillion lashans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 147,542 lashans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Brotothians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, a baby's first breath is also a baby's first felony, and glue production is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brototh's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is the Cult of Godsinia.

Brototh is ranked 134,788th in the world and 12th in Clorius for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -80.45 on the Hayek Index.
