The United Kingdom of Kaschovia is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television, devotion to social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.23 billion Kaschovians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The relatively small, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaiso. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Kaschovian economy, worth 740 trillion Kaschis a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 175,023 Kaschis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 744,220 per year while the poor average 26,509, a ratio of 28.1 to 1.
No-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight, children regularly take part in blood sports that result in extreme boo-boos, and crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track. Crime is totally unknown. Kaschovia's national animal is the Ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
