The NationStates Failure of Urauq is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Redael with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.373 billion Urauqians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ytic Urauq. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Urauqian economy, worth 422 trillion elddup yddums a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 125,259 elddup yddums, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, and the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Urauq's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Noigiler.

Urauq is ranked 236,160th in the world and 72nd in The Fish Tank for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -11.38 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
