Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Progressive Technocracy of Uchila Eru is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Adjama Santa with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 17.047 billion Uchila Eruians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Palla. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The strong Uchilian economy, worth a remarkable 3,122 trillion Lakoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 183,193 Lakoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, Adjama Santa's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is totally unknown. Uchila Eru's national animal is the Tundra Mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Uchila Eru is ranked 123,451st in the world and 150th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Authoritarian, with 0.03 Stalins.
