The United Kingdom of Mountainus is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 376 million Mountainusians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mountainus City. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Mountainusian economy, worth 27.6 trillion Mountainusian Dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,277 Mountainusian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ship captains always order a return to port at the slightest sign of rain, the government props up questionable pizza establishments in the name of health, hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Leader day after day, and the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Mountainus's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mountainus is ranked 36,750th in the world and 96th in Thaecia for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,444.6 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
