The Sovereign of Uprus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Anubis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.954 billion Uprusians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xandar. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Uprusian economy, worth a remarkable 3,410 trillion Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 311,374 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, the sanitised and dull music festivals of Uprus are famed for their reasonable volume levels, rumor has it that Anubis has won three lotteries in a row, and wishing you had children is considered a sign of child abuse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Uprus's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Lords of Kobol.

Uprus is ranked 1,073rd in the world and 16th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 151.91 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
