The Allied Green and Red States of Ubiquistania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Franfost with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.721 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 1,999 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 297,553 nabikits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drive-by spoilers are an increasingly common crime, hay has been added to school cafeteria menus, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee. 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 194th in the world and 3rd in the West Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 97.48 Workforce Participation Rate.
