The Commonwealth of Ulto is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.438 billion Ultoans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 40.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ultoan economy, worth 853 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,743 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else, the porpoise stadiums are open 24/7, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Ulto are famed for their reasonable volume levels, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ulto's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Ulto is ranked 24,416th in the world and 10th in Unknown for Highest Average Incomes, with 114,743.98 Standard Monetary Units.
