Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Englaand is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Richard V with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.754 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 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient English economy, worth 283 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 102,973 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists on vacation find The Anglican Church's scriptures make useful doorstops, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, immigrant Bigtopians work themselves to the bone to support gold-plated English pensions, and three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up. 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 32,835th in the world and 1,510th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.45 Weapons Per Person.
