The Emerald State of Ulster is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Thegn Fletcher Toney with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 13.453 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 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ulsteric economy, worth a remarkable 1,385 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 103,006 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Corporate lobbying has been outlawed, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, nations that kill an Ulsterman can expect a strongly worded letter, and the nation is Ireland's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. 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 62,213th in the world and 11th in Ireland for Largest Black Market, with 1.67 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
