The Clear Sky Republic of Ulymein is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.32 billion Ulies 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kastor. The average income tax rate is 37.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ulymeinian economy, worth 135 trillion Ulypences a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,298 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 176,988th in the world and 400th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -5.48 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
