The United Kingdom of Weardale is a country located in Spiritus in the Nation States. Weardale is a relitavely small nation, that ceded from the United Kingdom on the 1st July 2016.
The United Kingdom of Weardale is a fledgling, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren and hilly landscape, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 6 million Weardaleans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 29.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Weardalean economy, worth £390 billion a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is £55,742, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, Beef-Based Agriculture facilities are being turned into Cat habitats, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weardale's national animal is the Cat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
Weardale is a member of the World Assembly and has Spiritus Citizenship. Weardale is a world benchmark for Political and Economic Freedom, ranking 44th in the Spiritus region for the former.
Elizabeth II is the current Monarch for Weardale, however following the Weardale Monarch Referendum held on 1st July 2016, a new Monarch will be crowned by parliament on 1st August 2016.
