The Absolute Monarchy of British Pacific Islands is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Bugcat with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.201 billion Cool Kids 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ground Zero. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The frighteningly efficient British economy, worth 219 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 182,946 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

Fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year. Crime is relatively low. British Pacific Islands's national animal is the Unicorn and its national religion is Bugcatism.

British Pacific Islands is ranked 15,633rd in the world and 856th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.13 on the Human Development Index.
