The Queendom of Uspria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 323 million Usprians 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 government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shesa. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Usprian economy, worth 22.7 trillion Marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,236 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uspria's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uspria is ranked 11,457th in the world and 267th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,200.97 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
