The Former Nation of Urmanian is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by no one with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.61 billion Urmanianians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of no particular place. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Urmanianian economy, worth a remarkable 4,928 trillion memes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 264,825 memes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,467,392 per year while the poor average 2,548, a ratio of 968 to 1.

Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Urmanian's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Urmanian is ranked 245,095th in the world and 8,542nd in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 2.73 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
