The Socialist Republic of Brulafi is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by State President Paul Watson with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 3.783 billion Brulafis 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Turbaj. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Brulafi economy, worth 200 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,089 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, State President Paul Watson has just been declared ruler of Brulafi in an international press conference, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brulafi's national animal is the Kirati Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Brulafi is ranked 223,194th in the world and 179th in The Western Isles for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -17.97 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
