The Empire of Bronich is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate population of 871 million Brons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bronich City. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped food economy, worth 33.6 trillion Children by the pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 38,533 Children by the pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive, all telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', and much of Bronich's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bronich's national animal is the Tardigrade, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bronich is ranked 228,679th in the world and 6th in The Allied Brethren for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.17 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
