LeaderVermin Supreme


The Republic of Uppenja is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vermin Supreme with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.81 billion Uppenjans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walddyk. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uppenjan economy, worth 376 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 134,071 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Uppenja to be bombproof, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uppenja's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uppenja is ranked 38,929th in the world and 88th in Thaecia for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 66.28 Effective Tax Rate.
