The Empire of Urukisa is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 62 million Urukisans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 27.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Urukisan economy, worth 2.31 trillion Guilders a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,334 Guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, organ donation is compulsory, surveillance cameras are banned, and the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Urukisa's national animal is the Spider.

Urukisa is ranked 137,239th in the world and 85th in Middle Earth for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 691.93 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
