The Constitutional Republic of Urran is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Saki Hanajima with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.208 billion Urranese enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakura City. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Urranese economy, worth a remarkable 4,428 trillion Liens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 335,258 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and foreign policy often involves bullwhips and leather. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Urran's national animal is the Tancho Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christian Zionism.

Urran is ranked 112,231st in the world and 158th in Spiritus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.34 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
