Country – The former Honda Republic of Brawnistan (more commonly known now as Benzania)
Capital city: Brackly Town
National Anthem: “God save our double diffusion”
Currency: The pound. Prices are very low, for example an entire electronics shop is worth 30 pounds. The purchaser simply punches the shopkeeper 30 times and takes his purchase. Wealth is directly proportional to brawn.
Brawnistan had a difficult birth, for it was a small island with a dormant volcano, Mount Recession. The volcano erupted and many of the people perished; among them the Japanese leaders. One of the survivors, Prince Ross Brawn went about rebuilding the country, but killed many people off, possibly in a rage against nature’s cruelty, leaving the country with a very small population.
However, things soon began to change. World Conquerer Sir Lord Richard Branson saw the ruined island as an attempt to make many. He offered money to the now King Ross and as a result Virgin would be the country’s sole service provider. The country now has every Virgin brand ever, from Virgin cola to Virgin Media and even Virgin prostitutes.
The economy grew thanks to a clever way of making new Virgin cola. Prince Ross’s half cousin, Nick Fry, order of the Honda empire, worked in Branson’s new cola factory. He pioneered a new technology called “double diffusion”. Thanks to “double diffusion”, more carbon dioxide bubbles could be dissolved in the cola, making their Cola irresistably tasty. Sales of Virgin cola shot up, and hurt other countries economy’s, propelling Brawnistan onto the world stage.
This increased wealth was being shared out by King Ross, and many companies benefited. Most notably, a Button company profited mostly, becoming the world leader, in button making. A company selling Bars and Cellos also did well, although was eventually hurt by Vittel water, now under the ownership of a red coloured bull and a christian hornet.
Eventually, all the other cola companies copied the technology of double diffusion and so sales of Virgin cola dried up. The Button and Bars and Cellos companies set up base elsewhere, while World Conquerer Branson went elsewhere to make even more money. With the country weakening, it was easily overun by German forces looking to conquer Brawnistan. Prince Brawn surrendered and struck a deal with the new German masters. The country is now called Benzania but has not enjoyed the prosperity it enjoyed before.
