The People's Socialist Republic of Urgabah is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 32.147 billion Urgabahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cornucopia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Urgabahian economy, worth an astonishing 11,875 trillion Uollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 369,419 Uollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, Urgabahian Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and the nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urgabah's national animal is the Monitor Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urgabah is ranked 170,589th in the world and 7,117th in the West Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -55.25 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
