The Confederation of Ukotrium is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gonçallo Fernam Martym with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.703 billion Federwraithians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R'lyeh. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Federwraith economy, worth 887 trillion Rikases a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 155,597 Rikases, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown. Ukotrium's national animal is the Dagon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Order of The Ancient One.

Ukotrium is ranked 149,271st in the world and 108th in The Socialist Syndicalist Union for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -739.72 on the Hayek Index.
