The Armed Republic of Ump44 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.7 billion Ump44ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ump44ian economy, worth 466 trillion Monies 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 125,948 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Surveillance cameras are banned, trails to natural wonders are littered with trash from reality film crews, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and brave curators do battle with disorganised government libraries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ump44's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Ump44 is ranked 6,181st in the world and 389th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Black Market, with 278 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
