The Republic of Univercity is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.05 billion Univercityians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 93.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Univercityian economy, worth 488 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 160,078 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Univercity's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Univercity is ranked 283,035th in the world and 7th in Vickenian experiment containment zone for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -25.3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
