The United Kingdom of Brucklania is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 576 million Brucklanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shell City. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Brucklanian economy, worth 52.3 trillion Bruckles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 90,845 Bruckles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, the fire brigade often deal with cases of burnt toast, and a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brucklania's national animal is the Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Brucklania is ranked 132,570th in the world and 6,097th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 430.96 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
