The Oppressed Peoples of Brandon II is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 421 million BrandonIIs are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 28.9%.

The all-consuming BrandonII economy, worth 43.5 trillion Bitcoins 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, 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 impressive 103,349 Bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Chicago, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Brandon II's national animal is the Black Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brandon II is ranked 287,503rd in the world and 187th in Africa for Fattest Citizens, with 6.23 Obesity Rate.
