The United Kingdom of Spereid is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.014 billion Kostonans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lucent. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Spereidian economy, worth 18.7 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 18,439 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Lucent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Spereid's national animal is the bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Spereid is ranked 171,251st in the world and 3rd in The Moscow Pact for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.09 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
