The United Kingdom of Upper Britain is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 609 million Upper Brits 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 Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Keighley. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Upper Britainian economy, worth 35.7 trillion pounds 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 58,633 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Britain's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
