The Slave Empire of Ulkar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bologog Gro-Nolob with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.288 billion Ulkarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cul. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Ulkarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,206 trillion Khacks 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 266,211 Khacks, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Parking's carefree without parking car fees, midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, you can say what you like about the genocidal murderers that rule Ulkar but at least the trains run on time, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ulkar's national animal is the Vulcher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ulkar is ranked 16,955th in the world and 23rd in Psychotic Dictatorships for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
