The People's Socialist Republic of Urgabah is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.441 billion Urgabahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cornucopia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Urgabahian economy, worth an astonishing 13,702 trillion Uollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 376,024 Uollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, Urgabah is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urgabah's national animal is the Monitor Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urgabah is ranked 240,170th in the world and 5,874th in the West Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 0.94 Obesity Rate.
