The Armed Republic of The Young Ur is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 395 million Urrians 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, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Collingwood. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.4%.

The very strong Urrian economy, worth 32.5 trillion Gold Bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 82,215 Gold Bars, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, The Young Ur's fine wines are renowned throughout the region, and the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Young Ur's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Young Ur is ranked 54,237th in the world and 67th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,834.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
