British Bayonet

Population5.486 billion

CapitalSt Constantine
LeaderEmperor Arthur Britannia


The Krinslo Empire of British Bayonet is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Arthur Britannia with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.486 billion British are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Constantine. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 85.3%.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth a remarkable 1,777 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 324,049 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, and the Police Surveillance Unit's motto is "Gotta Catch 'Em All". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. British Bayonet's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Karadism.

British Bayonet is ranked 12,964th in the world and 695th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.78 on the Human Development Index.
