|Capital||Mr Happys Funland|
The United Kingdom of Idumetala is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, vat-grown people, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 615 million Idumetalans 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mr Happys Funland. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.2%.
The very strong Idumetalan economy, worth 45.4 trillion covetables a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 73,784 covetables, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 221,354 per year while the poor average 19,210, a ratio of 11.5 to 1.
All telephone traffic is monitored for 'national security reasons', nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines, babies are a small but significant export, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Idumetala's national animal is the leviathigoat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
