The Constitutional Monarchy of Umbrathelia is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and absence of drug laws. The hard-working, democratic population of 16 million Umbrathelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Umbrathelian economy, worth 881 billion Umbrathelian Bankmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. Average income is 55,067 Umbrathelian Bankmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and glancing at the car radio display while driving is treated as attempted homicide. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Umbrathelia's national animal is the Brown Bear.

Umbrathelia is ranked 55,732nd in the world and 388th in Europe for Rudest Citizens, with 65.64 Insults Per Minute.
