The Dictatorship of Northern Brotherhood of Steel is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Maxson with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.352 billion Brotherhood are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anchorage. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Brotherhood economy, worth a remarkable 1,074 trillion Caps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 146,213 Caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, and decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Brotherhood of Steel's national animal is the Radstag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
