Urial6

The Republic of Urial6 is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its parental licensing program, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.331 billion Urial6ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 88.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Urial6ian economy, worth 831 trillion florins 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 Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 192,072 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial6's national animal is the wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urial6 is ranked 2,151st in the world and 45th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 1,297 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
