The United Kingdom of -F4n 4rt- is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, restrictive gun laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The cynical population of 1.251 billion -F4n 4rt-ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 52.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient -F4n 4rt-ian economy, worth 43.5 trillion snails a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,768 snails, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The weather report is the prisoners' favourite programme, children have only the most basic of education, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and shanty towns of homeless immigrants are the ideal recruiting ground for terrorist organisations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -F4n 4rt-'s national animal is the owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

-F4n 4rt- is ranked 261,679th in the world and 171st in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -162.47 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
