The Republic of Univercity is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, aversion to nipples, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.604 billion Univercityians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Education, with Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Univercityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,216 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 217,071 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, overhead luggage compartments on trains sometimes conceal diminutive intelligence officers, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and tensions between the young and old have risen to record levels. 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 274,214th in the world and 7th in Vickenian experiment containment zone for Most Devout, with 2.77 prayers per hour.
