The Republic of Univercity is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, fear of technology, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.553 billion Univercityians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Univercityian economy, worth 382 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 149,805 currencies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 478,756 per year while the poor average 35,608, a ratio of 13.4 to 1.

Woke teenagers spontaneously burst into tears when thinking about the world's woes, the government has outlawed extremist parties, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Univercity's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Univercity is ranked 254,964th in the world and 7th in Vickenian experiment containment zone for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.49 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
