The Norsefire Protectorate of The Old English Order is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High Chancellor Peter Creedy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.258 billion English are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Old English Order's national animal is the Harrier, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Rationalism, and its currency is the Pound Sterling.

The Old English Order is ranked 3rd in United Kingdom and 1,706th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
