The Universal Union of Urimel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Blue Duke with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.278 billion Urim are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, 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 28.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urimelian economy, worth a remarkable 2,947 trillion Talents a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,895 Talents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 147,109th in the world and 6,107th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 41.67 on the Hayek Index.
