The Federal Republic of UUR is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.139 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thorium. The average income tax rate is 94%, and even higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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.
