The Armed Republic of Ubu-Rex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Silent Tristero with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.387 billion Ubu-Rexians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uqbar. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ubu-Rexian economy, worth a remarkable 7,330 trillion Alephs a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 207,140 Alephs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is totally unknown. Ubu-Rex's national animal is the Mugwump, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ubu-Rex is ranked 112,233rd in the world and 245th in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 794.9 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
