Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of --the United Kingdom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King William V with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, ubiquitous missile silos, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.708 billion Britons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 2.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth a remarkable 2,720 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 254,095 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, voting is voluntary, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, and corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients. Crime is totally unknown. --the United Kingdom's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of England.

--the United Kingdom is ranked 3,462nd in the world and 5th in European Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 13,959.47 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
