Broosking is the act of recruiting a prospective citizen of Talossa into a particular political party. It is widely regarded as unethical, though it is not illegal. To speak to a prospective citizen about Talossan politics before he or she is granted citizenship, especially in a way that would tend to colour the prospective citizen's opinion about one party or another, is considered to be broosking and strongly frowned-upon.

The term "Broosking" has as its origin a typographical error made by Alexandreu Davinescu when documenting the practice, which had been known for years as "Brooksing", after Talossan citizen Brook Pànetâ, although whether Pànetâ was a victim or a perpetrator of the practice is (currently) lost to history.
