The Universal Union of Urimel is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Blue Duke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.12 billion Urim 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 relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ur. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urimelian economy, worth a remarkable 3,063 trillion Talents a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 190,052 Talents, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Urimel's radio stations, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, and students abandon classrooms for online education. Crime is totally unknown. Urimel's national animal is the Urimelian Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urimel is ranked 217th in the world and 1st in Allwell for Least Corrupt Governments, with 98.89 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
