The United Kingdom of Canovia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Elizabeth II with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 15.965 billion British have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth a remarkable 2,886 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 180,822 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, etiquette guides advise visitors to 'grovel gracefully', and foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on British selfishness. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Canovia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of England.

Canovia is ranked 17,559th in the world and 45th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 7,937.47 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
