The Federal Republic of UUR is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 3.968 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. 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.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, abortions are routinely performed in UUR's hospitals, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. 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.

UUR is ranked 2,923rd in Balder and 111,765th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -4 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
