The Glorious Theocratic Empire of Significantly Sized Bricks is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Our Most Holy Supreme Bricklayer with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.282 billion Bricks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Foundry of Bricks. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.6%.

The all-consuming Brickish economy, worth 491 trillion Holy Bricks a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,614 Holy Bricks, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, adults have never outgrown their fear of monsters, religious officials are furious after discovering that things made of stone do not burn well at the stake, and children grow up long before the paperwork for their lemonade stands can be sorted out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Significantly Sized Bricks's national animal is the Eastern Spotted Brick, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Brick Laying.

Significantly Sized Bricks is ranked 3,591st in the world and 149th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 34 Valid Endorsements.
