The Federal Republic of Armstrong-Whitworth is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Cecil Blain with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.057 billion Armstrong-Whitworths 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Holzminden. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Armstrong-Whitworthian economy, worth 499 trillion Blistering Barnacles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,025 Blistering Barnacles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Cecil Blain's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, major cities run on potato batteries, the government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, and the election for Cecil Blain's office's janitor is heating up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armstrong-Whitworth's national animal is the Pig, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cheesism.

Armstrong-Whitworth is ranked 19,773rd in the world and 335th in 10000 Islands for Healthiest Citizens, with 10.42 bananas ingested per day.
