Nation of Urie

LeaderRon McVay


The Republic of Nation of Urie is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Ron McVay with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 5.437 billion Nation of Urieans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urie Nation City. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nation of Uriean economy, worth a remarkable 1,134 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 208,676 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

At least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Ron McVay's wardrobe, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime is totally unknown. Nation of Urie's national animal is the Ram, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nation of Urie is ranked 5,484th in the world and 105th in the Rejected Realms for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.02 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
