The People's Socialist Republic of Urgabah is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.986 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 13,507 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 375,340 Uollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. 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 116,569th in the world and 852nd in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 322 billion Standard Monetary Units.
