The United Kingdom of Everika is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 821 million Everikans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lidi. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Everikan economy, worth 19.8 trillion Riks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 24,081 Riks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, Everikans submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Everika's national animal is the Husky, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Everika is ranked 137,805th in the world and 401st in The Communist Bloc for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
