The Universal Union of Urimel is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Blue Duke with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.37 billion Urim hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 15.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urimelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,446 trillion Talents a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,736 Talents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Urimel's radio stations, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and students abandon classrooms for online education. Crime is totally unknown. Urimel's national animal is the Urimelian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urimel is ranked 168,506th in the world and 6,244th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.64 Obesity Rate.
