OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United States of Brenner Islandia is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 9.055 billion Brenner Islandians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brenner Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,688 trillion Matts a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 407,367 Matts, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,786,806 per year while the poor average 4,031, a ratio of 939 to 1.

Not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric, foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Brenner Islandian Moonshine", sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, and the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Brenner Islandia's national animal is the Jeff, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Brenner Islandia is ranked 233,296th in the world and 20th in West Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -64.34 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
