The Republic of Uprus is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Anubis with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, parental licensing program, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.649 billion Uprusians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xandar. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Uprusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,672 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 290,346 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Little kids often wonder why strange grown-ups are following them around the soft play areas, the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, and professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uprus's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lords of Kobol.

Uprus is ranked 72,256th in the world and 246th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 23.2 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
