Location: The Alliance of Dictators

Regional Influence: Vassal


The Majestic Empire of Branigan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Vladaxz with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.079 billion Braniganians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Blondie. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Braniganian economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion Lauras a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 199,135 Lauras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Real power lies not in the debating room but with those who decide what is debated, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, Supreme Emperor Vladaxz's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Supreme Emperor Vladaxz is a silly poophead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Branigan's national animal is the Pitbull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jediism.

Branigan is ranked 10,017th in the world and 18th in The Alliance of Dictators for Most Influential, scoring 5,475 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
