The Prosperous Community of Locksley Hall is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Tennyson with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.491 billion Locksley Hallians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loxley City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Locksley Hallian economy, worth 797 trillion Guineas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 177,650 Guineas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 689,639 per year while the poor average 31,326, a ratio of 22.0 to 1.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, customs officers pretend not to hear shouts of "HELP LET ME OUT!" emerging from diplomatic bags, and contestants on Locksley Hall's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Locksley Hall's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Antidisestablishmentarianism.

Locksley Hall is ranked 247,180th in the world and 6,512th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.61 bananas ingested per day.
