The People's Republic of Brituctam is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dalina Yatiraingh Shaperta with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.718 billion Britucties enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dasilompal. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The BBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, international tensions are high as Brituctam threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, voting is voluntary, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brituctam's national animal is the Britucty Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Britucty Palamul.

Brituctam is ranked 2nd in Plinghin and 41,869th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 81 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
