Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Englaand is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Richard V with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.048 billion English are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lunden. The average income tax rate is 43.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient English economy, worth 319 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 104,811 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBE Governor goes house hunting, and party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Englaand's national animal is the Hart, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Anglican Church.

Englaand is ranked 18,221st in the world and 945th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 76.18 on the Human Development Index.
