The Republic of British Free is a massive, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 1.839 billion British Freeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neltakakatus. The average income tax rate is 45.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient British Freean economy, worth 78.6 trillion florinnns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,760 florinnns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, riots have broken out as a water shortage threatens British Free's stability, and uploading purple prose to social media earns a place on a government watchlist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British Free's national animal is the swamp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
