The Empire of Brythonic Archipelago is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Our Glorious and Benevolent Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 8.444 billion Brythonic Archipelagoans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caer Bannog. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Brythonic Archipelagoan economy, worth a remarkable 2,824 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 334,504 Crowns, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brythonic Archipelago's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order of the God Emperor.

Brythonic Archipelago is ranked 52,340th in the world and 1,881st in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 78.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
