The United Kingdom of Britannia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Curzon with an even hand, and notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.052 billion Britannians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Londra. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Britannian economy, worth a remarkable 5,574 trillion Midget Gems a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 326,922 Midget Gems, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,529,449 per year while the poor average 41,746, a ratio of 36.6 to 1.

Preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, and farting etiquette is taught in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Britannia's national animal is the luminous blue squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Britannia is ranked 35,753rd in the world and 6th in The New Meritocracy for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 4,246.19 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
