The United Kingdom of Buckhem is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 691 million Buckhemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buckingham. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Buckhemian economy, worth 67.6 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 97,858 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Most ambassadors from Buckhem retire only a few years after being appointed, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, group photos of the members of parliament are often mistaken for family reunions, and the BBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Buckhem's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckhem is ranked 141,859th in the world and 6,284th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 46.29 on the Hayek Index.
