The Universal Union of Urimel is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Blue Duke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.827 billion Urim are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 22.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urimelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,912 trillion Talents a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,464 Talents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 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 207,928th in the world and 8,902nd in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -35.24 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
