The United Kingdom of Mediama is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Jessica L Williams III with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.585 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, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illustrantia. The average income tax rate is 54.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Mediaman economy, worth a remarkable 1,037 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 157,528 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, citizens are less concerned with policy and more concerned with whether politicians "call 'em like they see 'em", and warfare increasingly resembles a video game. 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 14,985th in the world and 71st in Europe for Most Stationary, with 1,114.77156432352 Days.
