The Kingdom Beyond the Skies of The Musical Box is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Old Father Thames with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles and absence of drug laws. The quiet, industrious population of 10.248 billion Musical Boxers enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Public Transport, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 27.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Musical Box economy, worth 502 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,043 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Musical Box's national animal is the Queen of Maybe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is worshipping the music of Genesis.

The Musical Box is ranked 185,422nd in the world and 80th in Philosophy 115 for Fattest Citizens, with 7.07 Obesity Rate.
