The Queen Victorian Community of Blue Booted Bobbies is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 30.329 billion Pennsans 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Penzance. The average income tax rate is 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pennsanian economy, worth a remarkable 4,877 trillion pounds a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 160,831 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, the people's love for Prime Minister is little more than self-preservation, and Prime Minister is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blue Booted Bobbies's national animal is the blue footed booby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Queen Victoria.

Blue Booted Bobbies is ranked 2,636th in the world and 138th in Osiris for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 158,257.93 Standard Monetary Units.
