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 notable for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.796 billion United Kingdoms of Great Etharian 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 the Environment, Education, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huddersfield. The average income tax rate is 74%, 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.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. 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 207th in Europeia and 20,983rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -5 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
