The Dhammic Socialist Republic of Ukotrium is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Council of Sanghas with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.973 billion Ukoneses hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 Uyoni. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ukonese economy, worth a remarkable 1,617 trillion Padmas 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 162,170 Padmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown. Ukotrium's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Zen Buddhism.

Ukotrium is ranked 214,992nd in the world and 25th in The Revolutionary Communist Alliance for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -37.44 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
