The Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Edward Johnson with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The cynical, devout population of 1.814 billion New Bradenia Ghostians 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rasputinia. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth 219 trillion Ghostian Dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 121,258 Ghostian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, politicians have tenure, state media features lively debates such as whether pineapple on pizza is an acceptable topping, and public projects are synonymous with yawn-inducing conformity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bradenia Ghost's national animal is the Black hounds, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ghost Protestant.

New Bradenia Ghost is ranked 143,989th in the world and 5,611th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
