The War-torn territories of U Crane is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vlodomir Zelansky with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.005 billion U Craneans 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.7%.

The strong U Cranean economy, worth 74.2 trillion Hryvnias a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 73,869 Hryvnias, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, twins move across the country to avoid being accused of the other's crimes, Vlodomir Zelansky has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. U Crane's national animal is the Sarus Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

U Crane is ranked 81,276th in the world and 29th in Union of Free Nations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 86.65 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
