The Constitutional Republic of Urran is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Saki Hanajima with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.684 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 government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Social Policy isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sakura City. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Urranese economy, worth a remarkable 5,028 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 342,454 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. 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 1,414th in the world and 7th in Spiritus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 29,469.83 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
