Great Britain and Galactic Commonwealth

Population669 million

CurrencyPound Sterling

The Empire of Great Britain and Galactic Commonwealth is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 669 million Britons enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 11.7%.

The strong British economy, worth 40.6 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 60,633 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Minorities play dumb to get more welfare payments, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Great Britain and Galactic Commonwealth's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Great Britain and Galactic Commonwealth is ranked 93,336th in the world and 2,258th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,506.42 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
