The Socialist Democracy of Brittexia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prime Directorate X with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 19.072 billion Brittexians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Troydon. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Brittexian economy, worth a remarkable 1,104 trillion bxdits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,893 bxdits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, Formula One cars in Brittexia boast 56 miles per gallon, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brittexia's national animal is the lupiraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brittexia is ranked 204,095th in the world and 427th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -27.64 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
