The Republic of Brotherland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Joan Ragno with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, free-roaming dinosaurs, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.427 billion Brotherlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brotherland City. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Brotherlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,691 trillion Songs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,458 Songs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, the Brotherlandian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, populations of two-headed Cats have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, and rumor has it that Joan Ragno has won three lotteries in a row. Crime is totally unknown. Brotherland's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Fratracism.

Brotherland is ranked 2,111th in the world and 70th in The East Pacific for Best Weather, with 455 Meters Of Sunlight.
