The Republican Dictatorship of The World Capitalist Confederation is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Frederick Von Limburgh with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.096 billion Britons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth 179 trillion Blocs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 163,399 Blocs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 898,470 per year while the poor average 15,084, a ratio of 59.6 to 1.

Billions of Blocs are being blown on orbital weapons development, British police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The World Capitalist Confederation's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The World Capitalist Confederation is ranked 60,359th in the world and 257th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Economic Output, with 179 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
