The Republic of Urial60 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.838 billion Urial60ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urial60ian economy, worth 876 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 181,210 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every week is blindness awareness week, Maths Professor Barbie is the most popular toy for boys and girls alike, giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls, and money is being desperately pumped into the ruined economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial60's national animal is the unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urial60 is ranked 3,471st in the world and 203rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 8,174.83 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
