The Dominion of British St Helena is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Duke Vincent Mountbatten with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.536 billion British St Helenans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Windsor. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient British St Helenan economy, worth 286 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,669 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British St Helena's national animal is the Feather-Bellied Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

British St Helena is ranked 158,314th in the world and 14th in The Lions World for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 43.47 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
