The Republic of Urial57 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its digital currency, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.464 billion Urial57ians 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, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 77.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Urial57ian economy, worth 536 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 154,803 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The fastest growing demographic of porn viewership is twelve to seventeen, Leader will only ring up foreign leaders if they agree to reverse the charges, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, and the full title of Hon Leader Vcte Mgve MF RULM GCUE runs to several pages. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Urial57's national animal is the parrot, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Urial57 is ranked 159,948th in the world and 5,921st in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -3.54 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
