The Peace of Uichi Ryu is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Agathos Daimon with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 18.931 billion Uichi Ryans 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rl'yeh. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Peaceful economy, worth a remarkable 4,369 trillion Kallisti Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 230,813 Kallisti Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

The national shouting contest has become an important part of the electoral process, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Agathos Daimon, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uichi Ryu's national animal is the Uichi Ryan Lake Turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

Uichi Ryu is ranked 150,390th in the world and 41st in Taijitu for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -935.66 on the Hayek Index.
