The Rogue Nation of Urmel is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.985 billion Urmelians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The strong Urmelian economy, worth 717 trillion Eis a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. Average income is 59,825 Eis, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 406,738 per year while the poor average 3,214, a ratio of 126 to 1.

Crime is a problem. Urmel's national animal is the Urmel.

Urmel is ranked 44,254th in the world and 6th in Haiku for Most Armed, with 1.56 Weapons Per Person.
