The United Kingdom of British Whiskum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Onder Kelkia with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 32.222 billion British Whiskumians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Inginas. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient British Whiskumian economy, worth a remarkable 6,584 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 204,336 Pound Sterlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every school is receiving a brand new eraser, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British Whiskum's national animal is the Goose, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

British Whiskum is ranked 680th in the world and 3rd in The New Inquisition for Lowest Crime Rates, with 172.17 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
