The Commonwealth of United Kingdom of Great Ethar is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by The Rt Hon A R Coxon with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.569 billion United Kingdom of Great Etharians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
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 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but sluggish United Kingdom of Great Etharian economy, worth 196 trillion Great Eitharian Pounds a year, is driven 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 25,917 Great Eitharian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports, and fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits. 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.
