The Most Serene Republic of Urizenjav is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Adeur Reivaj with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 19.052 billion Urizenjavians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enlightenment. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Urizenjavian economy, worth a remarkable 3,256 trillion mind aureuses a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,909 mind aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urizenjav's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Urizenjav is ranked 166,672nd in the world and 7,189th in the Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
