The United Kingdom of Great Harthund is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Jim Hacker with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.75 billion Great Harthundians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 54.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Great Harthundian economy, worth a remarkable 1,971 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 254,433 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Great Harthund's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Great Harthund is ranked 17,601st in the world and 448th in the Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,429.76 Tourists Per Hour.
