The Kingdom of Uenoyama is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.413 billion Uenoyamas enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 65.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Uenoyaman economy, worth 54.1 trillion Ens a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,294 Ens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, the government pours millions of Ens into rehabilitation programs annually, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uenoyama's national animal is the Superb Lyrebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uenoyama is ranked 216,985th in the world and 8,845th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -7.35 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
