The Colony of Ueropia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 588 million Ueropians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The thriving Ueropian economy, worth 43.7 trillion Saskeos a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 74,242 Saskeos, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 322,521 per year while the poor average 10,834, a ratio of 29.8 to 1.

Healthcare funding has been cut, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ueropia's national animal is the Red Feathered Fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ueropia is ranked 47,476th in the world and 1,815th in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,502.23 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
