The Clout Chasing Empire of Ulrech is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by High King Aldus with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.651 billion Ulrechians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yves Saint Laurent. The average income tax rate is 50.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ulrechian economy, worth a remarkable 1,814 trillion Ulrechian Sterlings 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 impressive 170,392 Ulrechian Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, the government is hungry to spread communism beyond the nation's borders, convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime is totally unknown. Ulrech's national animal is the Albino gorilla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ulrech is ranked 7,270th in the world and 28th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 6,418.71 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
