The Queendom of Brototh is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Richard Arxon with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.867 billion Brotothians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brotothian economy, worth a remarkable 2,189 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 amazing 278,280 lashans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major internet servers have acquired citizenship, Richard Arxon signs the laws but abides by none of them, only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections, and the nation's ballot sheets often contain ten-thousand word manifestos for each party. 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 6,564th in the world and 4th in Thaecia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,926.02 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
