The Empire of Uthenia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Närcissus with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.48 billion Uthenians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yaarenn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Uthenian economy, worth 219 trillion Pizars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 148,626 Pizars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 516,974 per year while the poor average 31,138, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.
The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, drunk drivers are sentenced to death, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uthenia's national animal is the Sparrow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
