The Rogue Nation of Severed state of Greater Cymru is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 421 million Greater Cymruans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aber Henge. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Greater Cymruan economy, worth 6.90 trillion Bartered goods a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 16,380 Bartered goods, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorus, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Severed state of Greater Cymru's national animal is the Red kite, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Severed state of Greater Cymru is ranked 248,132nd in the world and 181st in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -15 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
