The Reclusive Mountain Chiefdoms of Ul Ulo is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by High-Chieftan Ululo CCLIX with an even hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.707 billion Ululians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Spirituality is also considered important, while Education and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 35.6%.

The strong Ululian economy, worth 293 trillion gold coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 79,101 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone who doesn't attend Official Governmental Religious Services is fined, meetings are often scheduled for "about four-ish" following complete conversion to sundials, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, and nudity is frowned upon. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ul Ulo's national animal is the yak, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Animism.

Ul Ulo is ranked 125,333rd in the world and 111th in The Western Isles for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2.53 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
