The Republic of Ugranda is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.696 billion Ugrandans 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, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kamprala. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ugrandan economy, worth 811 trillion Ugrandan Shrillings a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,415 Ugrandan Shrillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, Ugrandan scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, acute politicians deride opposition members for being obtuse, and the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ugranda's national animal is the Ugrandan Crane, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ugranda is ranked 259,748th in the world and 12,240th in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -181.04 on the Hayek Index.
