The May St Wood Pigeon Save Us of British Calradia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Governor Robert De Bolloil with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.396 billion Calradians 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, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dhirim. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64.1%.

The frighteningly efficient British Calradian economy, worth 561 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,298 Pound Sterlings, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

Prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, parents who reward their teens' chores with concert tickets are charged with illegal reselling, and government policy is dictated by Anglicanism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. British Calradia's national animal is the Dhirim pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

British Calradia is ranked 2,356th in the world and 55th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 9,014.6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
