The Eternal Empire of New Imperial Britannia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by William II Lancaster with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.251 billion Imperial Britannians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.4%.

The frighteningly efficient New Imperial Britannian economy, worth a remarkable 2,152 trillion British Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 409,970 British Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,878,563 per year while the poor average 54,390, a ratio of 34.5 to 1.

The nation is wading into dangerous waters, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and citizens are grown in vats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Imperial Britannia's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Anglican Protestantism.

New Imperial Britannia is ranked 1,129th in the world and 3rd in Azure Watester Federation for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 10,258.92 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
