Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of --the United Kingdom is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King William V with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.521 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, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 2.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth a remarkable 2,654 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 252,334 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. 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 150,225th in the world and 181st in European Union for Most Conservative, scoring 16.08 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
