The Commonwealth of United Kingdom of Great Ethar is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Rt Hon A R Coxon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.804 billion United Kingdom of Great Etharians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huddersfield. The average income tax rate is 76.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient United Kingdom of Great Etharian economy, worth 454 trillion Great Eitharian Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,349 Great Eitharian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
Conspiracy theorists allege Huddersfield's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Kingdom of Great Ethar's national animal is the Eitharian Snow Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
