Nicholas and Great Britain

Population1.122 billion



The United Communist Kingdom of Nicholas and Great Britain is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Nicholas with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.122 billion Nicholas and Great Britishes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Nicholas and Great British economy, worth 170 trillion NichoPounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 151,779 NichoPounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nicholas and Great Britain's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Nicholas and Great Britain is ranked 215,499th in the world and 7,178th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.39 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
