The Federal Republic of UUR is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.502 billion UURians 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorium. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.
The all-consuming UURian economy, worth 447 trillion Xenoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 99,394 Xenoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, prudishness is on the way out, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UUR's national animal is the Two Headed Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
