The Universal Union of Urimel is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Blue Duke with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.265 billion Urim hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 15.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urimelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,622 trillion Talents a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,736 Talents, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Urimel's radio stations, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and students abandon classrooms for online education. Crime is totally unknown. Urimel's national animal is the Urimelian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urimel is ranked 2,854th in the world and 71st in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 642.84 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
