The Democratic Republic of Ur-Brick is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 881 million Ur-Brickians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ur-Brickian economy, worth 66.4 trillion videogames a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 75,366 videogames, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, ranchers are adept at mimicking wolf attacks, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ur-Brick's national animal is the gamer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ur-Brick is ranked 18,501st in the world and 4th in Globalist Alliance in Worship of Moloch for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 75.65 Effective Tax Rate.
