The Content Peoples of Umeria is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Helen D'Annain with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.018 billion Umerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agora. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Umerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,443 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 205,754 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Umerian Space Agency, builders across Umeria are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown. Umeria's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Umeria is ranked 822nd in the world and 23rd in Europe for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 78.63 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
