The Kingdom of Thomas More is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Francis II with a fair hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.605 billion Utopians 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 Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 90.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Utopian economy, worth 773 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 214,658 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime is totally unknown. Thomas More's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Thomas More is ranked 8,374th in the world and 9th in Catholic for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 90.13 Effective Tax Rate.
