The United Kingdom of Greater Engaland is a very large, genial nation, remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 177 million British are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 37.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong British economy, worth 12.6 trillion British Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,196 British Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and you can't put down the nation's attitude to pet health. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Engaland's national animal is the Sparrow hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Engaland is ranked 63,283rd in the world and 3rd in Sovereign Union for Most Developed, scoring 61.4 on the Human Development Index.
