The Radiance of Urum is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Nathaniel Morris with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 1.128 billion Urumiacs are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tweakborough. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Urumic economy, worth 66.5 trillion netherite rings 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 58,919 netherite rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Silksong has been named as Urum's national religion, the news is showing footage of Sir Nathaniel Morris bullying an old man to the point of tears, withdrawal of support for drug addicts is leaving many with cold sweats, and confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Urum's national animal is the Coelacanth, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Silksong.

Urum is ranked 226,405th in the world and 1st in Mysterions Industry for Most Secular, with 10.52 Atheism Rate.
