The May St Wood Pigeon Save Us of British Calradia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Alford Salisbury with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.162 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dhirim. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.3%.

The frighteningly efficient British Calradian economy, worth 934 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 181,119 Pound Sterlings, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 948,116 per year while the poor average 18,562, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, a serf by any other name works just as hard, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great British Calradian Liberator", and cigarettes are dead-cheap. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 8,263rd in the world and 187th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 181,119.97 Standard Monetary Units.
