The United Kingdom of Mabuvo is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Lucas Cohen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 2.439 billion Mabuvoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Welfare, although Defense, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saray. The average income tax rate is 12.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Mabuvoan economy, worth 115 trillion Apples a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,442 Apples, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mabuvo's national animal is the Chinese Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The worship of death.

Mabuvo is ranked 161,884th in the world and 256th in Oneid for Most Extreme, scoring 13.04 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
