The Holy United Socialist States of Ufask is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Njab with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.216 billion Ufaskians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ufa. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ufaskian economy, worth a remarkable 1,575 trillion rublecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 253,530 rublecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hackers post hourly updates on international summits, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Ufa Times is sold out, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown. Ufask's national animal is the Siberian seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is In Njab we trust.

Ufask is ranked 279th in the world and 13th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 98.44 on the Human Development Index.
