Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Kingdoms of Londonum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Onorius I with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cheerful, devout population of 17.913 billion Imperials are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Latrius. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Londonumic economy, worth a remarkable 2,404 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 134,214 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 130,115th in the world and 367th in The Roman Empire for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 284.33 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
