The Free Land of Uylensted is a very large, genial nation, notable for its prohibition of alcohol, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 166 million Uylensteders 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.2%.

The strong Uylenish economy, worth 14.1 trillion rykers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,708 rykers, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, many marriages go virtually unconsummated, religious figures have been banned from public holidays to make them more multicultural, and life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old". Crime is totally unknown. Uylensted's national animal is the long-eared owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uylensted is ranked 53,462nd in the world and 245th in Forest for Most Developed, scoring 64.21 on the Human Development Index.
