The Technological Republic of Umojai is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Yetari Plane with an even hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.25 billion 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anton. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Umojan economy, worth 136 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,810 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and every week is blindness awareness week. 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 148,604th in the world and 10th in International Economic Union for Most Devout, with 4.23 Prayers Per Hour.
