The United Kingdom of Epover is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 252 million Epoverans 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The Epoverian economy, worth 14.5 trillion Keltips a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 57,658 Keltips, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, strange looking men with big red noses are found hiding behind bushes and inside dustbins, and litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Epover's national animal is the Zoun, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Epover is ranked 63,834th in the world and 1st in The Allied Regions of Airavoira for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,977.44 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
