The Empire of Brythonic Archipelago is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Our Glorious and Benevolent Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 10.728 billion Brythonic Archipelagoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Law & Order, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caer Bannog. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brythonic Archipelagoan economy, worth a remarkable 3,729 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 347,687 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, and the public are free to vote for whomever the government wants in office. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Brythonic Archipelago's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Order of the God Emperor.

Brythonic Archipelago is ranked 2,847th in the world and 71st in The East Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 47.02 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
