The Dictatorship of Brotherhood of nod is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by kane with an iron fist, and remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.275 billion Brotherhood of nodians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of sarajevo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherhood of nodian economy, worth an astonishing 11,363 trillion tiberium crystals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 621,780 tiberium crystals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,458,937 per year while the poor average 10,517, a ratio of 519 to 1.

Only government officials may operate computers, the Small Council has more than a little influence, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Brotherhood of nod's national animal is the veinhols, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is order of kane.

Brotherhood of nod is ranked 32nd in the world and 2nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 6,410.57 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
