The United Kingdom of Buckhem is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Margomi with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.064 billion Buckhemians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buckingham. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Buckhemian economy, worth 202 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,123 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, the Buckhemian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Buckhem's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
