The Cluncil and Helth Shop of HMS NHS is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Ava of Nightingale with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.159 billion Patients 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 private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 124,616 Viruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations.

HMS NHS's national animal is the Guinea Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Scientism.

HMS NHS is ranked 6,286th in the world and 43rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,387.32 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
