The Kingdom of Urumpia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Richard McGregor with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, ubiquitous missile silos, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.262 billion Urumpians 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, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montevideo. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urumpian economy, worth 286 trillion British Pounds 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 impressive 126,573 British Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, the official Urumpian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, work creation schemes keep the masses occupied with meaningless tasks, and millions of Urumpians are excellent swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urumpia's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Urumpia is ranked 81,709th in the world and 3,924th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 46.64 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
