The United Kingdom of Koalanica is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 489 million Koalanicans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Victoria. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Koalanican economy, worth 10.4 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 21,344 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All the playground's a stage for Koalanican schoolchildren, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Koalanica's national animal is the killer whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Koalanica is ranked 122,408th in the world and 8th in Appalcadia for Rudest Citizens, with 33.67 Insults Per Minute.
