The Federal Republic of UUR is a massive, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 1.491 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorium. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, a government program is underway to revitalize UUR's beaches, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown. UUR's national animal is the Two Headed Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Xeno.
