The Republic of Urial30 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.386 billion Urial30ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urial30ian economy, worth 707 trillion pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 161,327 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, foreign leaders who don't applaud Leader's speeches are regarded as enemies of Urial30, Leader's military council has been nicknamed 'The Knights of the Rotund Table', and rocket scientists spend more time designing slide shows than launching rockets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial30's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Urial30 is ranked 6,960th in the world and 279th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 3,882.31 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
