The United Kingdom of The Animals is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eric Burdon with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 17.771 billion Animalsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newcastle upon Tyne. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Animalsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,195 trillion Blues Rifts a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 179,790 Blues Rifts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is totally unknown. The Animals's national animal is the Burdon Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnostic Pantheism.

The Animals is ranked 11,920th in the world and 116th in NationStates for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,593.14 Tourists Per Hour.
