The English Regions

Population16.021 billion

LeaderChristian Bonaparte Yard


The United Departments of The English Regions is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Christian Bonaparte Yard with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 16.021 billion English Regionsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zripton. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient English Regionsian economy, worth a remarkable 4,453 trillion Florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 278,008 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, third world countries are rich in "I Love Zripton" t-shirts, and sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls. Crime is totally unknown. The English Regions's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

The English Regions is ranked 736th in the world and 22nd in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 971.82 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
