The Vulpine Confederation of Ukarist is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen-Protectress Ukari Valpurin with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.617 billion Ukaristi are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Serahauslinn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ukaristi economy, worth a remarkable 1,211 trillion Kroans a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 335,083 Kroans, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,926,972 per year while the poor average 27,969, a ratio of 68.9 to 1.

Governments opposing Ukarist are beset by rebels, visions of giant pink Earns are a common side effect after Ukaristi eat their meals, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Serahauslinn Times is sold out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ukarist's national animal is the Earn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ukarist is ranked 169,857th in the world and 27th in The Universal Order of Nations for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -14.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
