The Empire of Ugria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Fox with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.804 billion Ugrians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Inner Ring. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ugrian economy, worth 990 trillion Denars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,282 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, and short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ugria's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Ugria is ranked 2,046th in the world and 14th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 67.62 Bank.
