The Emerald State of Ulster is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Thegn Fletcher Toney with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 14.362 billion Ulstermen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tara. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ulsteric economy, worth a remarkable 1,484 trillion thalers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,387 thalers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Ulsteric mussels the biggest in Ireland, immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, document forgery is a critical skill for would-be politicians, and concussed wolfhoundball players cannot remember their lineup position. Crime is totally unknown. Ulster's national animal is the wolfhound, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is New Avalon Catholic Church.

Ulster is ranked 103,340th in the world and 16th in Ireland for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
