The Republic of Urraan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Trevor Black with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 2.854 billion Urraanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yolk. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Urraanian economy, worth 86.5 trillion Kruogs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 30,315 Kruogs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everyone wants to be on the guest list for diplomatic parties, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, the government is purchasing vast amounts of palm oil for plastics production, and no true communist is an unbeliever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urraan's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Cult of personality.

Urraan is ranked 223,079th in the world and 288th in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 35,058 Standard Monetary Units.
