The United Commonwealth of New Bradenia Ghost is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arno Tyranic with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.94 billion New Bradenia Ghostians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Glasgow. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Bradenia Ghostian economy, worth 924 trillion Ghostian Dollars a year, is 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 common. Average income is an impressive 155,580 Ghostian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, new homeowners go furniture hunting with crowbars, it is illegal to liberate slaves, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth. 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 Secular State.

New Bradenia Ghost is ranked 165,574th in the world and 5,753rd in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 12.6 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
