The Republic of Univercity is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.815 billion Univercityians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Law & Order and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 92.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Univercityian economy, worth 442 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,313 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Mandatory state-funded classes teach Libertarianism, every political office comes fitted with a typewriter and an old filing cabinet, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of animals and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, and city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Univercity's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Univercity is ranked 85,400th in the world and 3rd in Vickenian experiment containment zone for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,614.22 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
