The United Socialist Republic of Ucratia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Viktor Kobanovitch Troska with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.37 billion Ucratians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, socially-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nogova. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, a recent political debate came to a quick close once the ruling party decreed it was "just plain silly", programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, and more and more students are taking up a career in medicine. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Ucratia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Cult of the Supreme Being, and its currency is the Durruti.

Ucratia is ranked 18th in The Internationale and 2,490th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 43 on the Enoch Index.
