The United Kingdom of ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 416 million ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09s are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 63.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09ian economy, worth 16.5 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,771 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young soldiers are shocked to discover there are no 'safe spaces' on a battlefield, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09, and organisations with 800 in their phone number are often raided by special forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09's national animal is the KRAYT DRAGON, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09 is ranked 38,013th in the world and 1,235th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 63.08 Effective Tax Rate.
