The People's Republic of Brituctam is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dalina Yatiraingh Shaperta with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 6.926 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. The average income tax rate is 88%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, Brituctam has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation. 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 3rd in Plinghin and 42,743rd in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 77 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
