The British Citizen of Onderkelkia2 is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 25.775 billion Onderkelkia2ians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Public Transport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.1%.

The powerhouse Onderkelkia2ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,905 trillion Pounds 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. 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 73,921 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 230,014 per year while the poor average 18,265, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Onderkelkia2's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Onderkelkia2 is ranked 36,178th in the world and 2nd in Great Britain and Ireland for Most Developed, scoring 62.89 on the Human Development Index.
