OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Free State of Umquay is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Humberto Tompkins with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.008 billion Umquayers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal government is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Quidfray. The average income tax rate is 1.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Umquayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,523 trillion shoogas a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 210,110 shoogas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A PhD just ain't what it used to be, vehicular homicide by Umquayian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and there's a mortuary next to every Umquayian restaurant. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Umquay's national animal is the charger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Umquay is ranked 178,163rd in the world and 23rd in Eladen for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.94 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
