The Commonwealth of United Kingdom of Great Ethar is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Rt Hon A R Coxon with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.301 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, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huddersfield. The average income tax rate is 68%, 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.

Euthanasia is legal, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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, and its currency is the Great Eitharian Pound.

United Kingdom of Great Ethar is ranked 581st in Europeia and 91,178th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -3 Whatever.
