The United Kingdom of Obridles is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 481 million Obridlesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 57.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Obridlesian economy, worth 17.7 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,816 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, and the fox is a protected species. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Obridles's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Obridles is ranked 183,572nd in the world and 6,260th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5.57 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
