The Queendom of Umoncil is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by High Queen Tor'iss'oun VI Snubel with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, ban on automobiles, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.414 billion Umoncilians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frichadar. The average income tax rate is 59.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Umoncilian economy, worth 862 trillion Malrs a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Soda Sales and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 69,516 Malrs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and High Queen Tor'iss'oun VI Snubel claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Umoncil's national animal is the flamingo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hinduism.

Umoncil is ranked 2,517th in the world and 128th in Osiris for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 209.2 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
