The Narex Council of The Ursian Empire is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 741 million 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 67.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ursian economy, worth 103 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. Average income is an impressive 139,508 Ursian Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate executives continue to enjoy generous tax benefits while the public is taxed to the hilt, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, the nation's laws on image rights are amongst the strictest in the world, and literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts. 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 18,412th in the world and 45th in Wintreath for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 18,017.83 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
