The Holistic Empire of United Kingdom of Selesnia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Empress Adélaïde I with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, daily referendums, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.602 billion Selesnians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Croixfleurmine. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Selesnian economy, worth 689 trillion Selesins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,897 Selesins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', posters on 'Selesnian Values' advise against being proud of United Kingdom of Selesnia, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Empress Adélaïde I's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown. United Kingdom of Selesnia's national animal is the Selesnian Cheeky Ermine, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Order of the Enlightened.

United Kingdom of Selesnia is ranked 6,148th in the world and 105th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 92.54 on the Human Development Index.
