The Commonwealth of The New British Isles is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 526 million New British Islanders 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 Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 13.7%.

The strong New British Islander economy, worth 35.6 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 67,630 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Swings are banned for being a danger to children, shady doctors seem to have impeccable records, New British Islander politicians are often described as having more style than substance, and a tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The New British Isles's national animal is the shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The New British Isles is ranked 170,944th in the world and 9,360th in The North Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 427.1 milliStalins.
