The Grand Duchy of Ump46 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.071 billion Ump46ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ump46ian economy, worth 546 trillion Monies a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,157 Monies, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, drugs containing the compound "oleum de serpens" are being sold to cancer patients, and a positive pregnancy test doubles as a visa. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ump46's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ump46 is ranked 240,358th in the world and 7,521st in the Rejected Realms for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -21.98 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
