The United Kingdom of Rheged and Cymru is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its burgeoning raven and dragon population. The democratic population of 410 million Britons enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Caer Legion. The average income tax rate is 32.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Rhegedian Cymraeg economy, worth 16.8 trillion silver pieces a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,952 silver pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, money grows on trees, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rheged and Cymru's national animal is the raven and dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rheged and Cymru is ranked 195,850th in the world and 2nd in The Apple Tree for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.67 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
