The Holistic Empire of United Kingdom of Selesnia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Adélaïde I with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.775 billion Selesnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Croixfleurmine. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Selesnian economy, worth 716 trillion Selesins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,954 Selesins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, Empress Adélaïde I is famed for giving great back rubs, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire. Crime is totally unknown. United Kingdom of Selesnia's national animal is the Selesnian Cheeky Ermine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order of the Enlightened.

United Kingdom of Selesnia is ranked 44,846th in the world and 418th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,970.24 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
