The Social Democratic Republic of Upansia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Brian Bóramha with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.687 billion Upansians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cappagh. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Upansian economy, worth 344 trillion Cumals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,276 Cumals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end, old warplanes and tanks that break down can't be repaired since no one makes the parts anymore, the saying 'break a leg' is now taken literally, and strategic bombers are being converted into preschools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upansia's national animal is the Mammoth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Upansia is ranked 8,862nd in the world and 5th in Union for Social Democracy for Most Inclusive, scoring 183.77 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
