The United Kingdom of Gluria is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and aversion to nipples. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 459 million Glurians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vesburg. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Glurian economy, worth 34.9 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,047 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

What happens in court stays in court, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gluria's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Gluria is ranked 200,367th in the world and 998th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
