The Democratic States of United Region Alliance is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ellenburg with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, lack of airports, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.433 billion United Region Allianceans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of United City. The average income tax rate is 34.5%.

The United Region Alliancean economy, worth 320 trillion deniers a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,953 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and the government has the power to seize property at will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Region Alliance's national animal is the beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

United Region Alliance is ranked 228,741st in the world and 6th in URA for Smartest Citizens, with 16.68 quips per hour.
