The Quiet Tranquility of Thousand Branches is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Madam Victoria Raymond with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 2.076 billion Branchians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ashas. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Thousand Branchesian economy, worth 141 trillion Petis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. 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 68,031 Petis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, children are shocked to find others "just like them" when they are taken out of the forest, and 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thousand Branches's national animal is the Bumblebee, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Unishiss.

Thousand Branches is ranked 53,523rd in the world and 88th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Income Equality, scoring 58.6 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
