The Conglomerate of Umbral Corporation is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Shadow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.934 billion associates 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Umbral Corporation. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Umbral Corporationian economy, worth a remarkable 7,784 trillion umbrals a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 371,870 umbrals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, teddy bear James Dean (aka "the Rebel Without the Claws") helps convince kids that candy cigarettes are cool, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and hunters often become the hunted. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umbral Corporation's national animal is the Main Battle Tank, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Umbral Corporation is ranked 16,668th in the world and 1st in Noxia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.76 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
