Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United People's Democracy of Umbra Ac Silentium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by dozens of elected councils with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.281 billion Umbraciums hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mors Somniorum. The average income tax rate is 19.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Umbracium economy, worth a remarkable 3,712 trillion Dreamstones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 279,501 Dreamstones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is known abroad mostly for its Parliamentary antics, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Mors Somniorum to enjoy their national art, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, and robosexual marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Umbra Ac Silentium's national animal is the Carpioneiros, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Umbra Ac Silentium is ranked 148,630th in the world and 4,600th in Lazarus for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.43 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
