The United Kingdom of Obridles is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 516 million Obridlesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 59.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Obridlesian economy, worth 18.7 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,201 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance, five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six-hundred revivals is how theatre-goers measure a year, and the fox is a protected species. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Obridles's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Obridles is ranked 179,395th in the world and 6,211th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 721.65 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
