The Kraterocracy of Uvoan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zkto' Zovban with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, public floggings, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.022 billion Uvoanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voroan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Uvoanian economy, worth 647 trillion Gellas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 214,106 Gellas, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uvoan's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Olevruthos.

Uvoan is ranked 38,739th in the world and 7th in Northern Ocean for Most Pro-Market, scoring 61.78 on the Rand Index.
