The People's Republic of Ubaria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Silas Ionannidis with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.251 billion Ubarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atherias. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ubarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,048 trillion Satars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,117 Satars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ubaria's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ubaria is ranked 18,313th in the world and 2nd in The Pub Region for Most Cultured, scoring 89 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
