The Fifth Rijk Electoral of Uvalor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Niko Vognorok-Rofker with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.823 billion Rijks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uval. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rijk economy, worth 501 trillion Uuras 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 177,679 Uuras, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Niko Vognorok-Rofker's bedroom, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uvalor's national animal is the Rijk Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of the Rijks.

Uvalor is ranked 263,834th in the world and 12,494th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -258.17 on the Hayek Index.
