The United Kingdom of Buckhem is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 423 million Buckhemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buckingham. The average income tax rate is 18.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Buckhemian economy, worth 39.7 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 93,967 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime is totally unknown. Buckhem's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckhem is ranked 38,087th in the world and 1,843rd in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,244.46 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
