The People's Republic of Ureen is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 428 million Ureešs are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seńse. The average income tax rate is 57.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ureen economy, worth 15.5 trillion Ureen Marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,328 Ureen Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, prison officers are bribed not to take bribes, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Ureen to be bombproof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ureen's national animal is the European starling, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ureen is ranked 186,041st in the world and 73rd in Geopolity for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
