The United Kingdom of English Bob is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.881 billion English Bobians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 54.0%.

The English Bobian economy, worth 935 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 44,794 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. English Bob's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

English Bob is ranked 18,030th in the world and 10th in Catlandatopia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,255.21 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
