The Armed Republic of Ubu-Rex is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Silent Tristero with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, daily referendums, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.269 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 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ubu-Rexian economy, worth a remarkable 7,486 trillion Alephs a year, is quite specialized and 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 206,421 Alephs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Defense lawyers suggestively note to juries how flagrantly happy victims were, candidates make campaign speeches at the funerals of former rivals, war vets look after war animals, and private pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are given away freely by the government. 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 5,635th in the world and 27th in NationStates for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.36 years.
