New Briantown

Population8.267 billion


CurrencyBriantown buck

The Space Pirate Empire of New Briantown is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brian with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 8.267 billion New Briantownians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt 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 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Briantownian economy, worth a remarkable 2,622 trillion Briantown bucks a year, is 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 317,208 Briantown bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Polite commuters on the Briantown Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Brian's bedroom, and citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets. 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 1,550th in the world and 48th in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 196,567.59 Standard Monetary Units.
