The most powerful nation in the world from a religious standpoint. The Glorious Brotherhood is the home of the United Brotherhood of Theologians. The nation itself is actually comprised of many smaller religious communes, each paying a stipend to the church for use of the land. There are very few cities, with the largest civilized section of the country being the Tower of Faith and the city surrounding it.

With the diversity of religious beliefs, and a separate region of the country set aside for the practice of these beliefs, there is a lot of variety in what each region of the country looks like. Relations between the different regions are mostly friendly, though there is a bit of rivalry between the branches of the Brotherhood. Even after years of coexistence, the various religions forming the United Brotherhood of Theologians do not agree on all things.

The current leader of the Glorious Brotherhood, Pietro Corvini, is the first person not affiliated with any of the religions to lead the nation. A self confessed agnostic, he was not originally desired for the role of leading the nation. However, his lack of defining faith has led to a great tenure leading the nation. Without having one branch of the Brotherhood to favor, he is able to more fairly act for the good of all. This has caused the council of the UBT (comprised of the heads of the 25 major branches, with an additional representative for the combined lesser faiths) to consider making it a tradition to have a non-religious leader after Corvini retires from office.
