The People's Socialist Republic of Urgabah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 36.95 billion Urgabahians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cornucopia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Urgabahian economy, worth an astonishing 13,955 trillion Uollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is an amazing 377,697 Uollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, Urgabah's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urgabah's national animal is the Monitor Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Urgabah is ranked 215,619th in the world and 4,905th in the West Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -65.89 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
