The War-torn territories of U Crane is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Vlodomir Zelansky with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 794 million U Craneans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kyiv. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.8%.

The strong U Cranean economy, worth 53.6 trillion Hryvnias a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 67,482 Hryvnias, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 208,044 per year while the poor average 16,898, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, and Vlodomir Zelansky has just been declared ruler of U Crane in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. U Crane's national animal is the Sarus Crane.

U Crane is ranked 185,502nd in the world and 95th in Union of Free Nations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -1.35 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
