The Holy Empire of Umbra Noctis is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its closed borders, prohibition of alcohol, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 910 million Umbra Noctians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arodon. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.6%.

The Umbra Noctisian economy, worth 34.7 trillion Gold Scales a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,155 Gold Scales, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangness and Sorcery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Umbra Noctis's national animal is the Noctis Royal Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Umbra Noctis is ranked 225,884th in the world and 7,162nd in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.58 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
