The Republic of Urial14 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its closed borders, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.483 billion Urial14ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 68.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Urial14ian economy, worth 560 trillion rubles a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,016 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The standard prescription for infertility-causing conditions is "go have a baby", politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and protestors are soaking piles of rubles in blood to make a point about government incomes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial14's national animal is the giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Urial14 is ranked 175,850th in the world and 6,960th in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -5.48 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
