The Armed Republic of Ulkar is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bologog Gro-Nolob with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.813 billion Ulkarians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cul. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ulkarian economy, worth 970 trillion Khacks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 166,886 Khacks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 941,375 per year while the poor average 14,557, a ratio of 64.7 to 1.

Prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, Bologog Gro-Nolob often plays real life games of Tower Defense against hordes of angry villagers, homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ulkar's national animal is the Vulcher, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ulkar is ranked 182,696th in the world and 840th in Chicken overlords for Most Average, scoring 20.38 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
