The King-Emperor's Viceroyalty of The Union of British North America is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Sir Peter Laurence with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.527 billion North Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philadelphia. The average income tax rate is 1.5%.

The frighteningly efficient North American economy, worth a remarkable 3,433 trillion North American pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 326,190 North American pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, rumor has it that Prime Minister Sir Peter Laurence has won three lotteries in a row, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Union of British North America's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Provincial Anglican Holdouts.

The Union of British North America is ranked 38,566th in the world and 6th in Regionless for Highest Drug Use, scoring 101.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
