The Free State of Britun is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 772 million Brits live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbawa DC. The average income tax rate is 14.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Britunian economy, worth 68.4 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 88,552 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Britun's national animal is the Chimpanzee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Britun is ranked 107,464th in the world and 3,666th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 1,447.2 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
