The Rogue Nation of Ump174 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.746 billion Ump174ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ump174ian economy, worth 142 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 81,608 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the military has declared that 'a woman's place is in the mess hall', and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ump174's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ump174 is ranked 14,138th in the world and 862nd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Black Market, with 49.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
