The Fédération of Ugtaui is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Phillip Petain with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.045 billion Ugtaui are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ville de buffles. The average income tax rate is 52.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ugtauian economy, worth 123 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,777 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, Ugtaui has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ugtaui's national animal is the Buffel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ugtaui is ranked 48,102nd in the world and 415th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,335.09 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
