The Kingdom of Brototh is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Richard Arxon with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.051 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 medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brotothian economy, worth 598 trillion Lashans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 196,018 Lashans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and a video of Richard Arxon wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 11,328th in the world and 37th in Thaecia for Most Developed, scoring 88.9 on the Human Development Index.
