The People's United Kingdom of ABC is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Avis Axl with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 6.48 billion Alphas enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verum. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Alphasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,032 trillion Unoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 159,326 Unoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A degree in Avis Axl Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, and a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. ABC's national animal is the Panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Alphrism.

ABC is ranked 2,845th in the world and 141st in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 193 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
