The Commonwealth of United Kingdom of Great Ethar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Rt Hon A R Coxon with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.511 billion United Kingdom of Great Etharians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huddersfield. The average income tax rate is 76.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The United Kingdom of Great Etharian economy, worth 581 trillion Great Eitharian Pounds a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 50,545 Great Eitharian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, the government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, and there has been a rapid increase of noise complaints over the sound of buzzing bees. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Kingdom of Great Ethar's national animal is the Eitharian Snow Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Kingdom of Great Ethar is ranked 116,346th in the world and 952nd in Europeia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 46.67 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
