The United Kingdom of Murphtannia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Murphy with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.369 billion Murphtannians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Birmingham. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Murphtannian economy, worth 121 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,415 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists, anti-government web sites are springing up, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, and engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Murphtannia's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Murphism.

Murphtannia is ranked 22,121st in the world and 364th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,773.57 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
