The Imperial Cactus Federation of Britarvia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Cactuar with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 15.918 billion Britarvians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Environment and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cactus Springs. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Britarvian economy, worth a remarkable 3,287 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 amazing 206,525 Peslars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,025,984 per year while the poor average 23,518, a ratio of 43.6 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, police are arresting costumed characters at comic book conventions, Jackalopes are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, and the government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers. 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 16,352nd in the world and 40th in The Allied States for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 15,532.51 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
