The United Kingdom of Brucklania is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Bruckles with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 821 million Brucklanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shell City. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brucklanian economy, worth 83.8 trillion Bruckles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,074 Bruckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, Brucklanian athletes are close to breaking the 2 minute mile and the 16 meter long jump, the military struggles with recruitment, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Brucklania's border. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brucklania's national animal is the Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Brucklania is ranked 207,750th in the world and 9,337th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -132.47 on the Hayek Index.
