The Dominion of Ululantibus is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its soft-spoken computers, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.028 billion Ululantibusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ululantibusian economy, worth 711 trillion picks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 141,411 picks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, the news is showing footage of Leader bullying an old man to the point of tears, and prudishness is on the way out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ululantibus's national animal is the Black Palm Cockatoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ululantibus is ranked 15,574th in the world and 883rd in Lazarus for Highest Average Incomes, with 141,411.69 Standard Monetary Units.
