New Briantown

Population5.861 billion


CurrencyBriantown buck

The Space Pirate Empire of New Briantown is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Brian with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.861 billion New Briantownians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Briantown. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Briantownian economy, worth a remarkable 1,721 trillion Briantown bucks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 293,715 Briantown bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to New Briantown's border, with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof, each infantry rifle comes pre-loaded with a single white carnation in the barrel, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Briantown's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Brianism.

New Briantown is ranked 1,516th in the world and 50th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.3 on the Human Development Index.
