The British Islands Confederacy

Population6.986 billion


The Free Land of The British Islands Confederacy is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.986 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, although Public Transport is also considered important, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The very strong British Islands Confederacyian economy, worth 735 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 105,303 Goldmarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 576,500 per year while the poor average 9,814, a ratio of 58.7 to 1.

There are fifty shades of yellow in outdoor swimming pools, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, Leader claims to be the epitome of family values, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 19,410th in the world and 1st in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 58.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
