The Democratic Republic of Uralia- is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 481 million Uralians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 43.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Uralia-ian economy, worth 15.5 trillion Uralian Rubles a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,235 Uralian Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uralia-'s national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
