The United Kingdom of Mediama is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Jessica L Williams III with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.708 billion Mediamen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illustrantia. The average income tax rate is 71.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mediaman economy, worth a remarkable 1,596 trillion Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 149,051 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economics is a shrinking field, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", and manufacturers of biodegradable plastics have to wait for months to show evidence of organic decomposition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mediama's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Mediama is ranked 12,699th in the world and 206th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.04 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
