The United Kingdom of Brettenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Joseph Burke with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 3.67 billion Brits have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Charity. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Brettenian economy, worth 652 trillion Royals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,803 Royals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Brettenian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Brettenia" at foreigners, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, and Brits refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brettenia's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Brettenia is ranked 101,419th in the world and 3,632nd in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 864.34 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
