The United Socialist States of Ursabeknikov is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bärenrat Markus with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 2.862 billion Ursines are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bärenparadies. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ursin economy, worth 425 trillion Ulags a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,518 Ulags, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Ursabeknikov's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, soldiers find that home gadgets and power tools are more effective as improvised weapons than the guns they've been issued, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ursabeknikov's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ursabeknikov is ranked 163,572nd in the world and 822nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 236.52 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
