The Kingric of Terra Britania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by James Osbourne with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.511 billion Englanders are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.3%.

The frighteningly efficient English economy, worth a remarkable 1,309 trillion Sterling Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 137,728 Sterling Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, the police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Terra Britania's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christendom.

Terra Britania is ranked 22,023rd in the world and 5th in Codex Ylvus for Most Developed, scoring 79.92 on the Human Development Index.
