The Holy Britannian Empire of Valtannia is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its national health service, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 779 million Britannians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pendragon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.2%.

The thriving Britannian economy, worth 60.3 trillion Britannian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,432 Britannian Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Government fact-checkers use surprising amounts of high explosive, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Valtannia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Valtannia is ranked 239,164th in the world and 13th in World of 2011 for Highest Drug Use, scoring 2.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
