The Domination of Pax Brittanica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Victoria with an even hand, and remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.852 billion British are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 30.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse British economy, worth 178 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 96,391 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Homosexuality has been banned to prevent the spread of homosexuality, vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, Queen Victoria has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, and artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pax Brittanica's national animal is the Lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Pax Brittanica is ranked 219,194th in the world and 210th in Giovanniland for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -12.65 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
