The United Kingdom of Obridles is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its digital currency, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.328 billion Obridlesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 61.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Obridlesian economy, worth 57.5 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,271 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, advanced mathematics books explain how two plus two equals five, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Obridles's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
