The Federal Republic of New Ulysses is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by President Jill Kavanagh with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 919 million Ulysses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Gettysburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The all-consuming Ulysses economy, worth 67.1 trillion Ulysses Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 73,021 Ulysses Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 211,084 per year while the poor average 20,032, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

The government response to disaster victims starving for bread is "let them eat stale cake", the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner, and millions of Ulysses are excellent swimmers. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Ulysses's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

New Ulysses is ranked 33,980th in the world and 1st in North West Sphere Alliance for Most Developed, scoring 64.36 on the Human Development Index.
