The Aster Palace BB Puppet of SouthWest Brightonburg is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 19.171 billion SouthWest Brightonburgians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.8%.

The thriving SouthWest Brightonburgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,165 trillion Kronor a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 60,783 Kronor, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 327,411 per year while the poor average 5,866, a ratio of 55.8 to 1.

School uniforms are compulsory, army rations are served on silver platters, Rupert Bear is considered to be the most risqué TV programme in SouthWest Brightonburg, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is a problem. SouthWest Brightonburg's national animal is the Brightonburgian Hare, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

SouthWest Brightonburg is ranked 30,153rd in the world and 1st in Deutschlanders for Most Primitive, scoring 67.31 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
