Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Great Kingdom of The Ultimate Uriel is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The God of the universe with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.274 billion The Ultimate Urielians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Spirituality, with Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Floating Patches of Heaven. Income tax is unheard of.

The sizeable but stagnant The Ultimate Urielian economy, worth 10.7 trillion Magnificent Ureos a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 2,504 Magnificent Ureos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 11,397 per year while the poor average 336, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

A large percentage of the poor live from cradle to grave in subterranean wage slavery, police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and the flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (The Ultimate Uriel has found 1 easter egg). Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. The Ultimate Uriel's national animal is the Great and Awesome Neanderthal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the great Pastafarianism.

The Ultimate Uriel is ranked 3,767th in Balder and 118,223rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -12 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
