|Leader||King Riordan VIII|
The Apostolic Kingdom of Urcea is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Riordan VIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 30.573 billion Urceans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urceopolis. The average income tax rate is 5.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Urcean economy, worth a remarkable 8,530 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 279,016 Imperial Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Urcean Liberator", and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Urcea's national animal is the Yellow Labrador, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.
