The Most Serene Republic of Ump358 is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 413 million Ump358ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Ump358ian economy, worth 15.0 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,271 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, planespotters are emigrating in droves, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, and no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Ump358's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ump358 is ranked 68,749th in the world and 2,674th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 45.2 Effective Tax Rate.
