The United Kingdom of Whattaland is a large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 85 million Whattalandians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.
The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Whattalandian economy, worth 3.97 trillion Philipeeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 46,696 Philipeeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Most academic research has ground to a halt, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, and military spending is on the increase. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whattaland's national animal is the Dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
