The Allied Green and Red States of Ubiquistania is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Franfost with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.738 billion Ubiquistanians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danaphafe. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ubiquistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,009 trillion nabikits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 298,235 nabikits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, and people make a career out of medical voyeurism. Crime is totally unknown. Ubiquistania's national animal is the Six-tufted turkey buzzard, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Gadgetism.

Ubiquistania is ranked 3,626th in the world and 103rd in the West Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 37 Valid Endorsements.
