The United Kingdom of Tertania is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Allison Lane with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.073 billion Tertanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Isonphis. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Tertanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,687 trillion Tertans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 266,756 Tertans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Air Tertania is rumored to receive more government funding than the Tertanian Air Force, ministers are now allowed to put suggestions in the governmental suggestion box, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, and the Random Number Gods do play dice with the universe (Tertania has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tertania's national animal is the raven, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Tertania is ranked 36,002nd in the world and 116th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 283,720 Standard Monetary Units.
