The Technocratic Imperium of Uthill is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Overlord Daug M'vrick Locard with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, sprawling nuclear power plants, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.053 billion Uthillians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luthill. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Uthillian economy, worth 703 trillion Tinybills a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 173,472 Tinybills, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government funds large training centres to turn House Cat Things into functioning members of society, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', children who believe in the tooth fairy are frequently shipped off to Bigtopia, and colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uthill's national animal is the House Cat Thing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Uthill is ranked 136,677th in the world and 6,671st in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -100.68 on the Hayek Index.
