The Allied States of Britarvia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Rushmore with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 17.025 billion Britarvians 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, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Las Venturas. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Britarvian economy, worth a remarkable 3,397 trillion Peslars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 199,536 Peslars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,011,286 per year while the poor average 21,839, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Angst-filled teenagers are rushing off to buy government bonds for some odd reason, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Britarvia's national animal is the Jackalope, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Britarvia is ranked 142,931st in the world and 127th in The Allied States for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 13.64 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
