The Armed Republic of The Young Ur is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander O Brian with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.039 billion Urrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Collingwood. The average income tax rate is 15.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Urrian economy, worth 255 trillion Urrian Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 125,412 Urrian Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Military spending is on the increase, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and glamping Urrians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Young Ur's national animal is the Four Arrowed Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Young Ur is ranked 117,287th in the world and 867th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 61.48 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
