The Federation of Ulrikandria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mistress President Ulrike Dunway with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 22.583 billion Ulrikandrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ulrikandria City. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ulrikandrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,728 trillion Ulriks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 76,522 Ulriks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists, prison walls have had to be modified to keep parkour-trained criminals from escaping, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ulrikandria's national animal is the Ulrika bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ulrikandria is ranked 183,758th in the world and 6,489th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 6.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
