The Renewed Kingdom of SHAYTAN UKHIROSS is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Steward Loyrim with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 17.274 billion Ukhirians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Education and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xen'garai. The average income tax rate is 98%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Gambling and Tourism.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. SHAYTAN UKHIROSS's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, its national religion is the Phoenix Crown, and its currency is the kural.

SHAYTAN UKHIROSS is ranked 4th in the South Pacific and 167th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 324 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
