The Republic of Urial52 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, zero percent divorce rate, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.852 billion Urial52ians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 92.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urial52ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion lire 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 black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. 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 amazing 237,992 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Flight attendants rip down curtains with revolutionary fervor, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, metal detectors at school gates make sure that teenagers are carrying at least one sidearm, and it's rare to find an unchewed pencil. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial52's national animal is the leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Urial52 is ranked 7,997th in the world and 211th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Governments, scoring 35.68 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
