The Queendom of Umbrala is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and enforced nudity. The compassionate population of 6.557 billion Umbralans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Umbralan economy, worth 441 trillion Las a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 67,316 Las, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umbrala's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Umbrala is ranked 167,605th in the world and 8,701st in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -12.08 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
