The Clear Sky Republic of Ulymein is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.497 billion Ulies hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kastor. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ulymeinian economy, worth 175 trillion Ulypences a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 50,263 Ulypences, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ulymein has designated Kastor as its capital city, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and many aides in Leader's office are known to be serial jaywalkers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ulymein's national animal is the Mantis Shrimp, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Ulymein is ranked 113,277th in the world and 160th in The Free Nations Region for Most Armed, with 0.33 Weapons Per Person.
