The Republic of Uppenja is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vermin Supreme with a fair hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.124 billion Uppenjans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Walddyk. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Uppenjan economy, worth 406 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 130,139 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, and tourists outnumber citizens two to one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uppenja's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uppenja is ranked 168,085th in the world and 201st in Thaecia for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -4.47 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
