The Socialist Technocracy of Urrangslan is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Technocratis Zelder Von Vulsburg the 2nd with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.631 billion Urrangslanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Melas Shentol. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urrangslanian economy, worth 526 trillion Zentors a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 200,205 Zentors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Everybody's got wood thanks to Technocratis Zelder Von Vulsburg the 2nd, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, police spend their Saturday nights breaking up illegal street races, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urrangslan's national animal is the black Parrot, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urrangslan is ranked 3,623rd in the world and 2nd in The United Ascendancy for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 9,733.72 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
