The British Founder of King Alexander is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Charles III with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 16.763 billion Britishes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The King Alexanderian economy, worth 982 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 58,630 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. King Alexander's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of England and Scotland.

King Alexander is ranked 97,662nd in the world and 129th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,478.84 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
