The Commonwealth of Umberhulk is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 37.493 billion Umberhulkians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Social Policy, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Umberhulkian economy, worth 199 trillion treasures a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 5,328 treasures, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, political activists are routinely executed, and Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umberhulk's national animal is the big bug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Umberhulk is ranked 122,732nd in the world and 12th in 100 Nations of Conquest for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
