The United Kingdom of Buckhem is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Margomi with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 1.103 billion 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 medium-sized 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 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Buckhemian economy, worth 109 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Average income is 99,523 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, the BBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and King Margomi has just been declared ruler of Buckhem in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Buckhem's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckhem is ranked 53,098th in the world and 2,284th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.19 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
