The Drugged-Out Hippies of UNIverseVERSE is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 34.393 billion UNIverseVERSEians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UNIverseVERSE City. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming UNIverseVERSEian economy, worth a remarkable 3,670 trillion gifts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 106,709 gifts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, the nation is currently revamping its entire education system, the new hit series "UNIverseVERSE's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, and a government program is underway to revitalize UNIverseVERSE's beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UNIverseVERSE's national animal is the muskrat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.

UNIverseVERSE is ranked 42,282nd in the world and 1st in The Smoking Lounge for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 113.57 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
