The Constitutional Republic of British Norklon is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vegun Golding with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.366 billion British Norklonians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oriamore City. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient British Norklonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,155 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,096 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government, and the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British Norklon's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

British Norklon is ranked 261,257th in the world and 1,118th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -203.06 on the Hayek Index.
