The Republic of Univercity is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its teetotalling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.05 billion Univercityians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized morass — prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Univercityian economy, worth 480 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,598 currencies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 590,113 per year while the poor average 29,446, a ratio of 20.0 to 1.

Univercityians are free from pain - but the side effects include loss of individual thought and freedom, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Univercity's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Univercity is ranked 283,683rd in the world and 7th in Vickenian experiment containment zone for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -25.12 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
