The Empire of Republic of the Utabian Islands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Valeria Asiriel I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.254 billion Utabians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Singapore. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Utabian economy, worth a remarkable 2,152 trillion Camiroes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,282 Camiroes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,167,592 per year while the poor average 13,830, a ratio of 84.4 to 1.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", children seem to be getting better at lying these days, and barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Singapore Natural History Museum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Republic of the Utabian Islands's national animal is the Bornean Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Republic of the Utabian Islands is ranked 179,901st in the world and 22nd in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.11 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
