The Republic of Ukantine is a very large, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, feral children, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 172 million Ukantineans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 18.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ukantinean economy, worth 9.19 trillion Souls of the Innocents a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 53,428 Souls of the Innocents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, parole board directors light up a joint before telling hash-brownie baking grannies that they have to stay behind bars, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, and restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Ukantine. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Ukantine's national animal is the Roseate Spoonbill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ukantine is ranked 20,242nd in the world and 1,084th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring 61.4 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
