The Technocratic Republic of Urrangslan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jazias II Dirion with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.824 billion Urrangslanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rodinum. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Urrangslanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,969 trillion Sterlions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 338,233 Sterlions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat", the state funds the recreational drug habits of every citizen, and Jazias II Dirion's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urrangslan's national animal is the Pargadia Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urrangslan is ranked 47,788th in the world and 20th in The Democratika for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,839.04 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
