The United Kingdom of Joyful River Spirits is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its triple-decker prams, frequent executions, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 3.652 billion Joyful River Spirits 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 enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, with Education, Industry, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riverbank. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Spiritual economy, worth 372 trillion Sodalite Balls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 101,940 Sodalite Balls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 366,656 per year while the poor average 20,286, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

Wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, the roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, and nudity is frowned upon. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Joyful River Spirits's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Joyful River Spirits is ranked 237,837th in the world and 457th in Forest for Most Secular, with 6.23 Atheism Rate.
