The Dominion of Urthland is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Bixby Phideaux Mars with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 7.212 billion Urthlandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urthland City. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urthlandian economy, worth 646 trillion talismans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 89,607 talismans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into Urthland, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Urthlandian democracy, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urthland's national animal is the Triple-headed Cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urthland is ranked 29,021st in the world and 1,494th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 134 Meters Of Sunlight.
