Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The United Socialist Republic of Ucratia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Viktor Kobanovitch Troska with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.416 billion Ucratians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nogova. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ucratian economy, worth 966 trillion Durrutis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 114,803 Durrutis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Ucratia's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ucratia's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Supreme Being.

Ucratia is ranked 82nd in The Internationale and 7,978th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 32 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
