The United Kingdom of Corrington is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 614 million Corrishes 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linlithgow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.9%.

The strong Corringtonian economy, worth 33.6 trillion Pounds a year, is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 54,769 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 160,440 per year while the poor average 14,748, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.

Indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Corrington to be bombproof, the nation's biggest export is stupidity, and election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Corrington's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Corrington is ranked 211,818th in the world and 303rd in United Kingdom for Most Armed, with 0.19 Weapons Per Person.
