The BB Puppet of North Brightonburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 33.99 billion North Brightonburgians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Spirituality, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.0%.

The powerhouse North Brightonburgian economy, worth a remarkable 2,026 trillion Gold Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 59,630 Gold Kronor, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 278,970 per year while the poor average 7,614, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and historical fiction has been banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a very well-funded police force. North Brightonburg's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

North Brightonburg is ranked 46,814th in the world and 1st in Island Continent for Most Primitive, scoring 50.99 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
