There are stark contrasts between the two. While the Lilliputians are superficial caring only for themselves, the people of Brobdingnag are more thoughtful and egalitarian. Lilliputians are amused by gossip. They are rather vapid and gossip incessantly. The Emperor, in particular, only seeks to be entertained and exercise his power. Gulliver has many thoughtful discussions with the leader of Brobdingnag about philosophy and ethics. On a physical note, Lilliputions are tiny, while people of Brobdingnag are giants.
