The Content Peoples of Umeria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Helen D'Annain with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.487 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 large, 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 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Umerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,970 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 207,680 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, and the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association. Crime is totally unknown. Umeria's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Umeria is ranked 185,740th in the world and 924th in Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.8 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
