The United Kingdom of Holy Spire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Regina Severina I with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.949 billion Spireans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solium Deae. The average income tax rate is 86.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Spirean economy, worth 325 trillion Ducats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 167,192 Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, students at universities think exercise bikes are pieces of abstract art, Bigtopian relations have become a minefield, and legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Spire's national animal is the Imperial Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Rose.

Holy Spire is ranked 7,553rd in the world and 20th in Wintreath for Highest Poor Incomes, with 125,324.86 Standard Monetary Units.
