We welcome The Republic of Brettums (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Brettums), as the 130th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Republic of Brettums is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5 million enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large government devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 28%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Cheese Exports industry.
Crime is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Brettums's national animal is the zebra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the brute.
