The Armed Democracy of Uplon is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Uplon with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.378 billion Uplonians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pley. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Uplonian economy, worth 776 trillion Decas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,405 Decas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, increasing numbers of children in Uplon have different eye and hair color to their supposed fathers, and corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uplon's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Uplon is ranked 140,471st in the world and 7,032nd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.41 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
