The United Kingdom of Albastray is a huge, genial nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 685 million Albastrayians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Albastrayian economy, worth 35.8 trillion Stras a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,289 Stras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying that someone looks a bit pale can be construed as hate speech, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Albastray's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Albastray is ranked 103,371st in the world and 4,954th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 26.74 on the Hayek Index.
