The Commonwealth of Umberhulk is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 34.464 billion Umberhulkians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, International Aid, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 59.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Umberhulkian economy, worth 181 trillion treasures a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 5,277 treasures, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, political activists are routinely executed, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umberhulk's national animal is the big bug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Umberhulk is ranked 168,479th in the world and 22nd in 100 Nations of Conquest for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 2 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
