The United Kingdom of Kollasia is a very large, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 148 million Kollasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 20.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kollasian economy, worth 6.77 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,761 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", people talk about things being better when men were men, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kollasia's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kollasia is ranked 80,577th in the world and 1st in The North Republic of Brotherhood for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 6,815.87 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
