The Constitutional Republic of Urran is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Saki Hanajima with a fair hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.686 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 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 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Urranese economy, worth a remarkable 6,778 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 383,269 Liens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Diplomatic fallout tends to be much more dangerous than radioactive fallout, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Saki Hanajima to meetings with foreign heads of state, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, and politicians preface their speeches with a declaration that any resemblance to speeches given by individuals living or dead is purely coincidental. 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 2,464th in the world and 9th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 6,055.1 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
