The Socialist Empire of Universal Utopian State is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Tomacina vi Vetearnia with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, soft-spoken computers, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.336 billion Vetearn are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Administration. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vetearn economy, worth a remarkable 6,220 trillion Francoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 405,622 Francoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, vaccinations are mandatory, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Universal Utopian State's national animal is the Giant Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Universal Utopian State is ranked 215th in the world and 3rd in the Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 18,130.73 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
