The United Kingdom of Crader is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its digital currency, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.4 billion Craderians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Craderian economy, worth 450 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,412 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and tourists flock to see the giant stone carvings of historical leaders at Mount Rushless. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Crader's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
