The Republic of Ukantine is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its feral children, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 883 million Ukantineans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 25.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ukantinean economy, worth 47.5 trillion Souls of the Innocents a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,753 Souls of the Innocents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, the government keeps its thumb on the scales of justice, the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ukantine's national animal is the Roseate Spoonbill, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ukantine is ranked 109,124th in the world and 2,988th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
