The Sovereign Nation of Ultimundus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Commissar with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.219 billion Ultimundusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ultimania. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ultimundusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,359 trillion Ultims 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 165,389 Ultims, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is, the sun now sets on the Ultimundusian Empire, and military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ultimundus's national animal is the Luggage, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Imperial Cult.

Ultimundus is ranked 3,713th in the world and 142nd in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 93.87 on the Human Development Index.
