The United Kingdoms of Londonum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Onorius I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 18.99 billion Imperials are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latrius. The average income tax rate is 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Londonumic economy, worth a remarkable 2,843 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,725 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and the military is recruiting war criminals to join its weapons research teams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Londonum's national animal is the Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dominism.

Londonum is ranked 169,398th in the world and 448th in The Roman Empire for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -27.45 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
