The Guy Who Got Zero Votes of Briteannia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King George V with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 1.459 billion Briteash have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Ben. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brit economy, worth 189 trillion cup'o'teas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 129,806 cup'o'teas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Emigrants arrive on foreign shores with nothing but pocket sand, Briteannia's first free elections in recent memory have been successfully concluded, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Big Ben to enjoy their national art, and mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels. Crime is totally unknown. Briteannia's national animal is the blue-eyed falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vampireism.

Briteannia is ranked 200,467th in the world and 7,445th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.4 Obesity Rate.
