Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Nipper


The Republic of Urial87 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.825 billion Urial87ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 92.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Urial87ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,032 trillion francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 213,908 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Urial87 City Times is sold out, politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, devotion to God is only skin-deep, and the Communist Party claims that selling things for profit isn't necessarily capitalism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urial87's national animal is the dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urial87 is ranked 180,228th in the world and 7,322nd in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9 Obesity Rate.
