The Dictatorship of English Colony is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 627 million English Colonyians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 15.1%.

The all-consuming English Colonyian economy, worth 62.4 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 99,461 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Investigative journalism into politicians' misbehaviour has abruptly ended, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of English Colony City, skyscrapers get built in just days, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force. English Colony's national animal is the falcon.

English Colony is ranked 33,941st in the world and 1st in Big Boii Empire for Most Authoritarian, with 1,491.33 milliStalins.
