The United Kingdom of Buckhem is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 455 million Buckhemians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buckingham. The average income tax rate is 21.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Buckhemian economy, worth 43.8 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 96,348 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Dictionary sales have hit an all-time high, the seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and there's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe. Crime is totally unknown. Buckhem's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Buckhem is ranked 107,915th in the world and 5,033rd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 1,314.49 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
