The Holy Democracy of The Universe World is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 9.783 billion Universals have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 42.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Universe Worldian economy, worth 356 trillion Universal Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 36,485 Universal Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, and a suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Universe World's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Universe World is ranked 56,228th in the world and 4th in The Great Universe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,719.52 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
