The United Kingdom of 90018 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.294 billion 90018ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 72.3%.

The frighteningly efficient 90018ian economy, worth 533 trillion 9003s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,262 9003s, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's Dreadnought-class tankbuster limousine is said to have more ammunition than the entire Brancalandian Army, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 90018's national animal is the 9003, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

90018 is ranked 22,394th in the world and 1st in United patriots for Largest Governments, scoring 25.24 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
