Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Most Serene Republic of Urizenjav is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Adeur Reivaj with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.967 billion Urizenjavians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enlightenment. The average income tax rate is 80.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Urizenjavian economy, worth a remarkable 3,004 trillion mind aureuses a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,234 mind aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The family of Adeur Reivaj bite their thumbs at paparazzi intrusions, a sledgehammer and a spray can are seen as the default tools of political debate, spontaneous nocturnal decapitation is considered 'death by natural causes' for enemies of Urizenjav, and for 25 mind aureuses tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. 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 45,808th in the world and 1,842nd in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 22.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
