The United Kingdom of New Benelux is a huge, safe nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 867 million Beneluxians 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brussels. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.2%.

The powerhouse Beneluxian economy, worth 77.7 trillion Benelux Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 89,588 Benelux Euros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 256,497 per year while the poor average 24,910, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

Most academic research has ground to a halt, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, prudishness is on the way out, and Leader sports gold-plated grillz to promote the government's hard money policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Benelux's national animal is the Red Fox.

New Benelux is ranked 200,356th in the world and 111th in Lands End for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -7.07 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
