The People's United Kingdom of ABC is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Avis Axl with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.048 billion Alphas enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verum. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alphasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,286 trillion Unoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 159,810 Unoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers, when shaking hands with foreign leaders Avis Axl wears an armoured gauntlet, employers are keenest on employees who lack family values, and sniffer dogs check train passengers for body odour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ABC's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alphrism.

ABC is ranked 2,933rd in the world and 168th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.37 on the Human Development Index.
