The United Socialist States of Udaron is a large, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 93 million Udaronians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Udaronian economy, worth 2.31 trillion Udars 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Information Technology. Average income is 24,862 Udars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and bars are packed at all hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Udaron's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Udaron is ranked 15,035th in the world and 531st in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 23.07 Average Smiles Per Day.
