The United Kingdom of Hornetopia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Lord of the Realm with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.327 billion Saxons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rock City. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hornetopian economy, worth 168 trillion Groats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,483 Groats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cults that offer eternal life after death to those who follow a self-sacrificing saviour are frowned upon, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, and the question of 'what is The Lord of the Realm's favorite color?' has been given a priority rating of burnt-orange. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hornetopia's national animal is the Dog of War, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hornetopia is ranked 43,659th in the world and 2,111th in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 1,120.87 milliStalins.
