The United Kingdom of Korven and Podir is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Michael Bluett with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.303 billion Barcons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sangrena. The average income tax rate is 59.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Barcish economy, worth 59.2 trillion Barcon Crowns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is 45,424 Barcon Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, Michael Bluett has just been declared ruler of Korven and Podir in an international press conference, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Korven and Podir's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Korven and Podir is ranked 78,846th in the world and 2,762nd in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 36.04 quips per hour.
