The Federal Republic of Uprea is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Bernardo Vincente with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.492 billion Upreans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vasca. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uprean economy, worth 140 trillion Reas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,898 Reas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the government pours millions of Reas into rehabilitation programs annually, torture is illegal, and protests are legal but strictly supervised. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uprea's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uprea is ranked 65,014th in the world and 92nd in The Western Isles for Most Income Equality, scoring 53.33 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
