The Republic of Brother Bishop is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ghost with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.009 billion Brother Bishopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowandale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Brother Bishopian economy, worth 270 trillion Dragoons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,799 Dragoons, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

No animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and the entire entry for Brother Bishop in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brother Bishop's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Abbaddonity.

Brother Bishop is ranked 137,627th in the world and 102nd in St Abbaddon for Highest Drug Use, scoring 17.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
