The Content Peoples of Umeria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Helen D'Annain with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.37 billion Umerians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agora. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Umerian economy, worth a remarkable 2,335 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,386 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign despots proudly bandstand on Umerian airwaves, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and glamping Umerians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is totally unknown. Umeria's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Umeria is ranked 232,853rd in the world and 1,244th in Europe for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -10.11 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
