The Narex Council of The Ursian Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Alexander Windwalker with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.136 billion Ursians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ursus Majoro. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ursian economy, worth 159 trillion Ursian Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,102 Ursian Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown. The Ursian Empire's national animal is the Ursian Polar Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Ursian Empire is ranked 63,436th in the world and 102nd in Wintreath for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 4.25 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
