The May St Wood Pigeon Save Us of British Calradia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Governor Alford Salisbury with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.776 billion Calradians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dhirim. The average income tax rate is 35.8%.

The frighteningly efficient British Calradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,870 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 240,588 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, babies are a small but significant export, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British Calradia's national animal is the Dhirim pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

British Calradia is ranked 29,880th in the world and 666th in The East Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 91.01 insults per minute.
