The Constitutional Republic of Urran is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Saki Hanajima with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.939 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, although Defense, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, 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 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Urranese economy, worth a remarkable 3,964 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 332,040 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, the UBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and the Urranese delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". 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 1,936th in the world and 9th in Spiritus for Safest, scoring 142.29 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
