Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Utika is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 19.403 billion Utikans 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Utikan economy, worth 543 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 28,018 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political activists are routinely executed, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and teenagers are sent to jail for being out too late. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Utika's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Utika is ranked 38,656th in the world and 17th in Ancient Lands for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 45.83 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
