The Great Congregation of Brethren is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Archdolphop Snow Warslayer with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.468 billion Brethren are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thriwich. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The powerhouse Brethren economy, worth 413 trillion tokens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an impressive 119,308 tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents dread their examinations more than their children, Thriwich spends billions upgrading public transport, interest in globalism never flags, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Seagullball fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brethren's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Dolphinism.

Brethren is ranked 221,440th in the world and 8,866th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -15.64 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
