The Dominion of Urthland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Emperor Bixby Phideaux Mars with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.975 billion Urthlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urthland City. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Urthlandian economy, worth 679 trillion talismans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Average income is 97,490 talismans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, and the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urthland's national animal is the Triple-headed Cobra, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Urthland is ranked 14,002nd in the world and 620th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,760.62 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
