The Fountain of Braingeyser is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by MrBrain with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 31.743 billion Braingeyserians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of BrainCity. The average income tax rate is 89.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Braingeyserian economy, worth a remarkable 3,678 trillion brainwaves 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. 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 115,896 brainwaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cities are engulfed by smog, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Braingeyser's national animal is the book wurm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Braingeyser is ranked 255,979th in the world and 118th in Nederland for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -12.59 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
