The Republic of Urial41 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.427 billion Urial41ians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Urial41ian economy, worth 744 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,175 deniers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 545,279 per year while the poor average 39,138, a ratio of 13.9 to 1.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, people who tease dwarfs are being cut down to size, and nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial41's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urial41 is ranked 12,316th in the world and 405th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,944.76 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
