The Republic of Urial99 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.402 billion Urial99ians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urial99ian economy, worth 665 trillion pesos a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 195,568 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, it is often said that only Leader could bring down Dàguó, and shell-shocked refugees are made to provide Immigration with lively renditions of 'Dancing Queen'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial99's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Urial99 is ranked 38,019th in the world and 1,508th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 32.47 Atheism Rate.
