The Dominion of Urthland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Bixby Phideaux Mars with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.931 billion Urthlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urthland City. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urthlandian economy, worth 659 trillion talismans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 95,107 talismans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urthland's national animal is the Triple-headed Cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urthland is ranked 10,583rd in the world and 880th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 30.91 Bank.
