The Secret of British Pacific Islands is a massive, safe nation, ruled by King Bugcat with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.827 billion Cool Kids are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ground Zero. The average income tax rate is 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth 656 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 232,258 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and conspiracy theorists allege Ground Zero's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols. Crime is totally unknown. British Pacific Islands's national animal is the Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Bugcatism.

British Pacific Islands is ranked 5,154th in the world and 311th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.51 on the Human Development Index.
