The Narex Council of The Ursian Empire is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Windwalker with an even hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, feral children, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.27 billion Ursians 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ursus Majoro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ursian economy, worth 739 trillion Ursian Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 173,074 Ursian Coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 622,510 per year while the poor average 34,442, a ratio of 18.1 to 1.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime is totally unknown. The Ursian Empire's national animal is the Ursian Polar Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Dreams of Holy Bear.

The Ursian Empire is ranked 239,853rd in the world and 331st in Wintreath for Most Primitive, scoring -495.05 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
