The Pink Zombie Uniocracy of Umbratellus is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, enslaved workforce, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 565 million Umbratellans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternitatis. The average income tax rate is 33.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Umbratellan economy, worth 85.4 trillion brains a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 151,196 brains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the government offers gay men mildly offensive tips on how to pass as straight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Umbratellus's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Umbratellus is ranked 12,613th in the world and 1st in Astral Sea for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8,100.11 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
