The Confederacy of Ump122 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 504 million Ump122ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 47.9%.

The strong Ump122ian economy, worth 23.9 trillion Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 47,331 Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Parents are really careful to pick the right gun for their kids' birthdays, the latest political memes depict Leader as an overly-choreographed robot, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and kids who move from attending a public school in the city to the country often struggle in goat milking class. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ump122's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ump122 is ranked 64,000th in the world and 3,072nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 47.94 Effective Tax Rate.
