The Constitutional Republic of Urran is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Saki Hanajima with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.077 billion Urranese hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Oita. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Urranese economy, worth a remarkable 6,988 trillion Liens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 386,591 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urran's national animal is the Tancho Crane, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christian Zionism.

Urran is ranked 166,382nd in the world and 142nd in Spiritus for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.16 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
