The United Kingdom of Moszce-Walvard is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, soft-spoken computers, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 408 million Moszce-Walvardians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Vardetta. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Moszce-Walvardian economy, worth 47.1 trillion Kruppels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 115,489 Kruppels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Intelligence agencies frequently invite passers-by into their secret vaults for tea and biscuits, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, much of Moszce-Walvard's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moszce-Walvard's national animal is the whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Moszce-Walvard is ranked 130,512th in the world and 6,329th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 368.99 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
