Republic of the Utabian Islands

Population15.494 billion

AnimalBornean Tiger

The Empire of Republic of the Utabian Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Valeria Asiriel I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, humorless population of 15.494 billion Utabians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singapore. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Utabian economy, worth a remarkable 2,976 trillion Camiroes a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,107 Camiroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, and it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of the Utabian Islands's national animal is the Bornean Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Republic of the Utabian Islands is ranked 160,426th in the world and 31st in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Stationary, with 45.79891513312 days.
