The Queendom of Umbrala is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 8.33 billion Umbralans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Umbralan economy, worth 597 trillion Las a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,774 Las, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, some members of Parliament are illiterate, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umbrala's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
