The United Kingdom of Plazland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by ᴘʀᴇᴍ'ʏᴇʀ-ᴍɪɴɪꜱᴛʀ ʙᴏɢᴅᴀɴ with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.393 billion Plazans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Janus. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Plazanic economy, worth a remarkable 1,602 trillion Plazanic digital Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 250,643 Plazanic digital Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nations across the world are quick to praise ᴘʀᴇᴍ'ʏᴇʀ-ᴍɪɴɪꜱᴛʀ ʙᴏɢᴅᴀɴ's good looks and intellectual prowess, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and 'Plazanic Black Eaglenado 6: You Gotta Be Kidding Me' is this summer's top-grossing movie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plazland's national animal is the Plazanic Black Eagle and its national religion is Orthodoxy.

Plazland is ranked 3,698th in the world and 78th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,215.91 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
