The Federated Twin City-Communes of Babylon and Ur is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mister Awesomeawesome with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, avant-garde cinema, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.619 billion Babylonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Babylon. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Babylonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,740 trillion Copper Ingots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 274,676 Copper Ingots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, racehorses move a lot slower these days, terrorist videos start by thanking their sponsors, and space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Babylon and Ur. Crime is totally unknown. Babylon and Ur's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Babylon and Ur is ranked 217,540th in the world and 627th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -3.79 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
