The Narex Council of The Ursian Empire is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Windwalker with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 4.217 billion Ursians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ursus Majoro. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ursian economy, worth 716 trillion Ursian Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,817 Ursian Coins, with the richest citizens earning 9.2 times as much as the poorest.

A determined opposition debates the relative benefits of Arial and Times New Roman for days on end, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms. Crime is totally unknown. The Ursian Empire's national animal is the Ursian Polar Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of the Dreams of Holy Bear.

The Ursian Empire is ranked 16,649th in the world and 61st in Wintreath for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,199.79 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
