The May St Wood Pigeon Save Us of British Calradia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Alford Salisbury with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.341 billion Calradians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dhirim. The average income tax rate is 68.8%.

The frighteningly efficient British Calradian economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,637 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation honors the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered British Calradian weed picker, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Calradians, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British Calradia's national animal is the Dhirim pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

British Calradia is ranked 201,697th in the world and 8,002nd in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 Crimes Per Hour.
