The Elected Monarchy of World Trade is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Monarch Elect with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.084 billion Brussians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elizabeth. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient World Tradean economy, worth a remarkable 1,584 trillion Crypto-pounds 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 260,494 Crypto-pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', royalist is the most offensive slur in the World Tradean language, and candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. World Trade's national animal is the wild Prince Charles, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is atheism.

World Trade is ranked 11,103rd in the world and 8th in Thaecia for Highest Economic Output, with 1,584 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
