The Christmas of Ulvena is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nick Santa with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.471 billion Ulvenans 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Siyang. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ulvenan economy, worth a remarkable 2,298 trillion candy canes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,344 candy canes, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

People have to sneak out of the country in order to have sex, both criminals and civilians are DOA, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ulvena's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Ulvena is ranked 201,505th in the world and 28th in United Empire of Islam for Most Avoided, scoring 0.7 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
