The United Democratic Republics of Universalius is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Premier Beaumont with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 3.062 billion Universalusians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hall of Universalius. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Universalusian economy, worth 484 trillion Grand Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 158,127 Grand Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Universalius's national animal is the Harpy Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Religious Freedom.

Universalius is ranked 50,623rd in the world and 1,625th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,239.87 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
