The Technological Republic of Umojai is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic population of 711 million Umojans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anton. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Umojan economy, worth 68.2 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 95,852 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, swings are now more popular than see-saws in children's playgrounds, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umojai's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Umojai is ranked 162,674th in the world and 13th in International Economic Union for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
