The Federation of Ulrikandria is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Mistress President Ulrike Dunway with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.84 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 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Ulrikandrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,546 trillion Ulriks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,215 Ulriks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

It is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself. 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 1,470th in the world and 60th in Balder for Most Pacifist, with 206.59 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
