The Republic of Brys questions is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Bris with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.674 billion Brys questionsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sköldpadda. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brys questionsian economy, worth 451 trillion Sköldpadda myntas 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 a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. 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 67,623 Sköldpadda myntas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, and the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned. Crime is totally unknown. Brys questions's national animal is the Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Brys questions is ranked 207,639th in the world and 167th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -6.26 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
