The Eternal Empire of New Imperial Britannia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by William II Lancaster with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.094 billion Imperial Britannians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 60.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Imperial Britannian economy, worth a remarkable 1,436 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 350,998 British Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. 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 14,693rd in the world and 12th in Azure Watester Federation for Most Developed, scoring 87.44 on the Human Development Index.
