The Content Peoples of Umeria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Helen D'Annain with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ban on automobiles, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.935 billion Umerians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agora. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Umerian economy, worth a remarkable 3,604 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 212,846 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with Helen D'Annain. Crime is totally unknown. Umeria's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Umeria is ranked 58,355th in the world and 287th in Europe for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 242,030 Standard Monetary Units.
