The British Islands Confederacy

Population5.346 billion


The Free Land of The British Islands Confederacy is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.346 billion British Islanders live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Environment, with Public Transport also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong British Islands Confederacyian economy, worth 562 trillion Goldmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 105,256 Goldmarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 576,241 per year while the poor average 9,809, a ratio of 58.7 to 1.

Police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, British Islanders have replaced bears in a popular idiom, and there are fifty shades of yellow in outdoor swimming pools. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The British Islands Confederacy's national animal is the badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The British Islands Confederacy is ranked 41,801st in the world and 25th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
