The United Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Arno Tyranic with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.425 billion New Bradenia Ghostians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Glasgow. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth 863 trillion Ghostian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,122 Ghostian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", armed security details escort librarians to their homes, a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, and statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families. 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 Old Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is New Bradenian Catholicism.

New Bradenia Ghost is ranked 20,565th in the world and 322nd in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 863 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
