The Torched Savannah of Ugg Lands is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by that guy hiding under the cupcake-table with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 22.004 billion Ugg Landsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ugg Lands City. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Ugg Landsian economy, worth 634 trillion Uggs 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 28,827 Uggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A National Academy regulates grammar and usage, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and the government has legalised small-scale capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ugg Lands's national animal is the Great Crested Ugg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is has been hijacked by dancing ewoks.

Ugg Lands is ranked 3rd in Grand Central and 28,372nd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 106 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
