The United Socialist States of Upcrus is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 568 million Upcrusians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miracrus. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Upcrusian economy, worth 35.2 trillion Cruses a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,931 Cruses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Miracrus to enjoy their national art, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, and citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upcrus's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Upcrus is ranked 29,116th in the world and 197th in The Internationale for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.02 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
