The Little Nightmare of Bruxxa is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Thin Man with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.269 billion Monsters are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pale City. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bruxxan economy, worth a remarkable 2,091 trillion Sausages 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 287,720 Sausages, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, it takes a village to catch a criminal, and Thin Man's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Bruxxa's national animal is the Nome, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hungee.

Bruxxa is ranked 18,966th in the world and 3rd in Tavern in the Woods for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 334,563 Standard Monetary Units.
