The Guy Who Got Zero Votes of Briteannia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King George V with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed population of 1.479 billion Briteash have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Ben. The average income tax rate is 55.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brit economy, worth 194 trillion cup'o'teas 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. 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 an impressive 131,591 cup'o'teas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The aims of top-secret Brit science projects revolve around designing the perfect robot woman, billions of cup'o'teas are spent to take high-quality photos of the Blue-eyed Falcon Nebula, first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime is totally unknown. Briteannia's national animal is the blue-eyed falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vampireism.

Briteannia is ranked 98,902nd in the world and 3,474th in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 2.82 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
