The United Kingdom of Behe Hapirip is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 238 million Behe Hapiripians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Behe Hapiripian economy, worth 8.04 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,792 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, parents are fined for sending their children to take out the trash after sunset, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Behe Hapirip's national animal is the bison.
