The May St Wood Pigeon Save Us of British Calradia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Alford Salisbury with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.242 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, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dhirim. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.3%.

The frighteningly efficient British Calradian economy, worth a remarkable 3,159 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 common. Average income is an amazing 281,001 Pound Sterlings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 906,704 per year while the poor average 65,862, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, Calradians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun, and wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities. 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 1,430th in the world and 33rd in The East Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 212,718.17 Standard Monetary Units.
