The Armed Republic of Ubu-Rex is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Silent Tristero with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 35.809 billion Ubu-Rexians 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 is primarily concerned with Education, with Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uqbar. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ubu-Rexian economy, worth a remarkable 7,387 trillion Alephs a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 206,303 Alephs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown. Ubu-Rex's national animal is the Mugwump, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ubu-Rex is ranked 2,351st in the world and 14th in NationStates for Most Developed, scoring 97.44 on the Human Development Index.
