The Old Empirical United Kingdom of San Janoso is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sir Lifeless with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5.704 billion 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 Education, Commerce, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Canaproru. The average income tax rate is 79%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Tourism.
Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Janoso's national animal is the Wepandoruthalo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the San Janoso Pound.
