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 rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.754 billion Great Harthundians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Great Harthundian economy, worth a remarkable 1,385 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 240,806 Pound Sterlings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 936,626 per year while the poor average 42,330, a ratio of 22.1 to 1.

Foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, purported secret military bases are dismissed by Prime Minister Jim Hacker to be highly-advanced toilet factories, Great Harthund's airwaves are dominated by corporate-backed commercial radio, and the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque. 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 55,548th in the world and 2,664th in the Pacific for Most Devout, with 346.09 Prayers Per Hour.
