The Queendom of Brototh is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Richard Arxon with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.882 billion Brotothians 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 Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wigan. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brotothian economy, worth a remarkable 2,227 trillion lashans 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. 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 an amazing 282,577 lashans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nations across the world are quick to praise Richard Arxon's good looks and intellectual prowess, the nation's black ops are starting to get on people's nerves, the most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brototh's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is the Cult of Godsinia.

Brototh is ranked 8,894th in the world and 19th in Thaecia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 422.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
