The United Kingdom of Gristol-Serkonos is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Chancellor Kaniehtiio Fox with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 16.059 billion Gristol-Serkonoseans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pontiac Bernadotte. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Gristol-Serkonosean economy, worth a remarkable 1,351 trillion Kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,167 Kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the opposition leader's credibility has been undermined by constant attention drawn to a dodgy toupee, and a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gristol-Serkonos's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Gristol-Serkonos is ranked 86,666th in the world and 17th in Ajax for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.39 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
