The United Kingdom of Ump467 is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its hatred of cheese, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 686 million Ump467ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 50.6%.

The thriving Ump467ian economy, worth 43.4 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,272 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Trust-fund babies line up for places in community college, political candidates must be personally vetted by Leader, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths. Crime is a serious problem. Ump467's national animal is the Giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ump467 is ranked 188,508th in the world and 5,431st in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 53.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
