The Queendom of Umbrala is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.085 billion Umbralans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Umbralan economy, worth 575 trillion Las a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,221 Las, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The newest shade developed by Umbrala's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, some members of Parliament are illiterate, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Umbrala's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Umbrala is ranked 12,930th in the world and 697th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.85 Years.
