The Allied States of Utriel is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 122 million Utrielians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 31.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Utrielian economy, worth 5.07 trillion kamas a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,517 kamas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.
Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Utriel's national animal is the red kite.
