The Kraterocracy of Uvoan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zkto' Zovban with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.841 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voroan. The average income tax rate is 77.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uvoanian economy, worth 553 trillion Gellas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 194,808 Gellas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Atheists on vacation find Olevruthos's scriptures make useful doorstops, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, it's always rabbit season, and visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 68,303rd in the world and 5th in Northern Ocean for Most Stationary, with 107.89883372248 Days.
