Nation Information Edit
Utovica is a medium sized, mostly developed, and ancient nation with citizens primarily of Mixed ethnicity who follow various religions. Its technology is first rate and its citizens marvel at the astonishing advancements within their nation. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of Utovica work diligently to produce Uranium and Pigs as tradable resources for their nation. It is a mostly neutral country when it comes to foreign affairs. It will usually only attack another nation if attacked first. It believes nuclear weapons are necessary for the security of its people. Plans are on the way within Utovica to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. Utovica allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. Utovica believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. Utovica will not make deals with another country that has a history of inhuman treatment of its citizens.
Origins of Utovica Edit
On Planet Earth, a group of people from a number of different nations came together hoping to figure out what is "the perfect society". After meeting, they decided to leave Earth to come to the prospering Planet Bob. Altogether, 144 humans of Earth left their home to build a new nation on Planet Bob, which came to be known as Utovica.

- 10/6/2009: A group of Green Peace activists within Utovica known as the Union of Green Peace (UGP) called on the government to create a national Earth Day holiday. They expressed that this holiday will serve to remind Utovicans to appreciate their environment. Since the nation was still young and building, the Utovican government turned down the offer. To explain their actions, the president held a speech reminding Utovicans that work would have to come before the environment until Utovica became a stronger nation.
- 11/06/2009: The outer lands of Utovica had been in drought for months. Ever since the establishment of Utovica, the affected areas did not receive rain.

Environment of Utovica Edit
Ever since their arrival, Utovicans hoped to be a good example of stewards to the environment. By utilizing some green technologies from the start, Utovica was able to maintain a fairly good environment. Yet it was not to last.
The primary reason Utovica has never been able to maintain a nearly perfect environment is because of high amount of radiation in Planet Bob’s atmosphere. For many months, the environment has been dismal in most areas of Utovica because of the record-high radiation levels from the Second Unjust War. Just before May, the environment began to show signs of recovery. After a few weeks, Utovica’s environment came close to perfection. During the first half of 2011, the environment became terrible again because of nuclear fallout from the PB-NpO War. But after many months of radiation reduction, Utovica’s environment reached its highest levels.
Utovica is divided into 11 states. In addition, each state is divided into counties.
State Capital/National Capital: Utovica Mega-City
The nation’s capital is an enormous and ever-growing array of structures based off of the proposed Shimitzu Mega-City Pyramid. Since the mega-city is so massive, the area around the city and most of the Atlantic coastline have been declared a separate state. Pyramidia is the official name for the area occupied by or to be occupied by the Mega-City Pyramids.
In addition to the Mega-City Pyramids, a number of small-sized cities act as gateways between the pyramids and the rest of Utovica. The largest of these is Goldshore City. Because of the capital’s high capacity, Pyramidia is easily the most populous province in Utovica.
Utovica Mega-City, also known as the Utovica Mega-City Pyramids, is the nation’s capital city and easily the most populous city.
State Capital: Marblemill
State Capital: Corerum
Cathadur is the industrial center of Utovica; the state contains more factories than the rest.
State Capital: Ebon
Lauriland is known to be the “Jungle of Utovica” and the “Garden of Utovica”. It is Utovica’s largest state by land area and 93% of that land is forest. The state has very few cities for its size. It is the state where many greenhouses, botanical gardens, and biodomes are built to grow and analyze many types of plant life. Lauriland is also known for having the greenest buildings in Utovica and the world.
State Capital: Harbor City
State Capital: Corinor
State Capital: Moorfield
State Capital: New Dubai
State Capital: Avica
State Capital: Territana
State Capital: Corlea
The Utovican Forefathers wished to create a strong government that allowed for democracy and had strong control of the country’s economy. During the journey to Planet Bob, they discussed the structure of their government. They agreed on a government similar to that of the Earth nation, the United States of America.
The Utovica Forefathers believed that people and governments needed to work together. So they laid out a government that allowed for a high amount of sociality. This system kept bureaucracy to a minimum and allows citizens to be more interactive with their representatives and even with their president.
Utovica’s national government is a hybrid presidential capitalist-democracy, a hybrid of capitalist and democratic governments. This social government allows for fair elections while at the same time maintains fair control over the country’s mixed economy to limit unemployment and excessive consumerism. The government is based in the nation’s capital, Utovica Mega-City, in 1 of its sectors known as Pyramid of Utovica.
At the state level, it was decided that the people have the right to decide how their respective state’s government should be. Most of them ended up being either a form of representative democracy or constitutional monarchy.
Utovica’s government is known to be a nonpartisan government, prohibiting the development and influence of political parties in the national government. The founders of Utovica shared George Washington’s view that political parties would disrupt society. They wanted to make sure the Utovican government “supports the interests, security, and posterity of the people, not a people, to the best of their ability.”
In case of disastrous or critical situations, the Senators of Utovica can give the Councilors and the President special emergency powers by majority vote that would temporally make the government a communist government. The first time this power was exercised was during the PB-NpO War in response to the nuclear bombardment experienced by Utovica.
All branches except for the judicial have the power to propose bills that can be made into law with a majority vote by all members of the other two branches.
The government believes that it is the right of every citizen to propose ideas to the government. Thus, citizens can come before the Senate or the Council to present bills for new laws for the nation or new innovations to help the nation.
The executive branch in the Utovican government consists of the President of Utovia, sometimes referred to as Utovicapresident, and the ministries that conduct the branch’s day-to-day operations. The president of Utovica is Franklin Roosevelt Bashir.
The legislative branch is primarily composed of the Senate of Utovica, the assembly of all Senators of Utovica. A resident is chosen from each county to represent his or her respective county in as a Senator in the Utovican government. The legislative branch is also composed of the Council of Utovica, filled in by 12 Councilors of Utovica. The councilors represent the upper legislature branch in the Utovican government as they preside over the Senate. Because of that, they are sometimes considered to be the heads of government. The first and current senators are none other than the Utovican Forefathers. When a Senator wishes to retire, he/she would nominate an individual among the Utovican people. If all senators agree, the appointed-senator would take the seat of the nominator. Members of both the Senate and the Council have the power to propose bills that can be made into law. In order for those bills to become law, there must be a majority vote of approval from each of the two legislative bodies. After it is approved in the Senate and the Council, the President can then sign the bill for it to become law. Citizens can also propose bills before the Senate with review and approval of their respective Senator.
Utovica’s Judiciary branch consists of a Supreme Court, the State courts, and local courts. The Supreme Court is the highest court in Utovica, composed of 12 of the most righteous judges, lawyers, and religious leaders in the nation. These 12 judges are known as Supreme Judges.
Foreign Relations Edit
Utovica is a member of the alliance known as the Viridian Entente. Soon after the establishment of the nation, Utovica was contacted by a representative of the Viridian Entente. The Entente offered growth aid and protection in exchange for obedience and allegiance to the alliance. Through the alliance, Utovica was a respectable tech seller. Because of the nation’s successful economic policies, Utovica became one of the financial capitals of the Viridian Entente. The Utovican government appoints an ambassador to represent Utovica in the VE alliance. For as long as Utovica was in the alliance, Utovica’s ambassador to the Viridian Entente is Barrett Beecher.
Even though Utovica hopes to stay out of conflict, it maintains a fairly good sized military for defensive purposes. The military would also work cooperatively with other militaries within the Viridian Entente during times of war. For a long time, none of Utovica’s military forces were deployed for war. But when the PB-NpO War broke out, the military became alert. Even though the nation declared “Peace Mode”, the military were warned by the government that they might be called into battle. Though they remained under peacetime status, they increased training exercises for the enlisted military and pointed out locations for potential temporary military bases, or guerilla camps.
The peace that Utovica enjoyed for nearly 500 days would not last, because on January 27, 2011, Utovica deployed its military to support the Viridian Entente’s war efforts against the New Polar Order. During the war the military proved to be a fair fighting force. It enjoyed a number of victories and repelled nearly all ground attacks, but it was susceptible to nuclear weapons. Utovica’s military is known for pushing 3 nations into a state of zero infrastructure.
Utovica Army Edit
Number of Soldiers: 18,000
Number of Tanks: 0
The Utovica Army is primarily tasked with defending the nation from ground assaults and, on rare occasions, acts as a police force. The army would also conduct ground warfare against other nations if necessary. Some soldiers become members of police forces throughout Utovica.
When the PB-NpO War became a full-blown conflict, the Utovican government began purchasing M1A2 Abrams tanks to increase the nation’s defensive strength. Afterwards, when Utovica entered the war, the military dramatically boosted soldier and tank numbers to maximum capacity.
In the later months of the war, the Utovica Army became known to be vulnerable to nuclear weapons, losing nearly 400,000 soldiers to nuclear attacks.
Utovica Air ForceEdit
Number of Military Aircraft: 105
Established on July 14, 2010, the Utovica Air Force is responsible for defending Utovica’s air sovereignty, conducting search and rescue missions and military airlift operations, and performing air and irregular warfare. The vast majority of the UAF’s fleet contains F-22 Raptor fighters modified to have VTOL capabilities and be compatible with a variety of fuel sources. For bombing operations, the UAF flies Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bombers, nicknamed “White Devils” by the military, which carry 40,000 kg of ordinance.
Because of the loss of technology during the PB-NpO War, Utovica couldn’t develop their usual aircraft, so the government began to purchase B-2 Spirits for bombing operations and F-15 Eagles and Su-30 MKIs for fighter operations.
Utovica Missile Corps Edit
Number of Cruise Missiles: 0
Number of Nuclear Weapons: 25
Utovica’s Missile Corps are a special military branch trained to manage Utovica’s cruise missiles. When the Utovican military decides to make missile attacks, the UMC will plan and coordinate missile strikes and oversee the launching sequences. Even though Utovica is against nuclear warfare, the Missile Corps is capable of handling nuclear weapons.
When Utovica joined the Viridian Entente’s war effort in the PB-NpO War, the Utovica Missile Corps were called to duty. During the war, the Missile Corps carried out missile attacks with complete success, not one attack was successfully countered. They were also responsible for keeping track of nuclear attacks against Utovica. Even though they were able to deflect 23 nuclear missiles with their Counter Missile Initiative, 14 nuclear missiles detonated in Utovican airspace causing terrible damage to the nation’s military, infrastructure, and economy.
When President Bashir declared a state of emergency during the PB-NpO War, he vowed to push for more research into nuclear weapons in order to better spar against enemy nations. When these WMDs were successfully developed, they came under the jurisdiction of the Utovica Missile Corps.
Infrastructure level: 11,125.39
Utovica builds most of its cities, towns, and suburbs to be spacious to allow new infrastructure to be easily built and integrated. The Utovican government urges planners to allow for the possibility of future facilities to be built in most areas. Utovica is one of the few nations that has strived for zero emissions ever since establishing their nation. Because of the absence of automobiles, nearly every city has walkways instead of roads. Utovica sold some of its green technology research to other nations to gain funds to speed up infrastructure production. Utovica utilizes renewable energy resources to power the nation. Utovica’s transportation systems are some of the finest in the world. Because of its uniquely superb economic system, Utovica became one of the financial centers for the Viridian Entente.

Labor Camps Edit
To make sure that unemployment would be kept to a negligible percentage, the Utovican government established Temporary Employment Agencies, or T.E.A.s, that help guarantee that about every citizen can get a job. The TEAs are known as “Labor Camps” to other nations. TEAs handle employment for a number of workplaces. They allow for fair distribution of workers in their assigned areas.
Presently, there are 5 TEA locations: Utovica International Airport, Harbor City, Cathadur, Marblemill, and Utovica Mega-City. The most popular TEA location is Utovica International Airport, and the largest location contains a number of factories in Cathadur.
National Wonders Edit
- Agriculture Development Program, Anti-Air Defense Network, Disaster Relief Agency, Fallout Shelter System, Federal Aid Commission, Foreign Air Force Base, Great Monument, Great Temple, Great University, Hidden Nuclear Missile Silo, Internet, Interstate System, Manhattan Project, Mining Industry Consortium, Movie Industry, National Research Lab, National War Memorial, Pentagon, Social Security System, Space Program, Stock Market, Strategic Defense Initiative, Weapons Research Complex
The “National Wonders” are special projects funded mainly by the government and maintained by the government. These projects dramatically improve the economy and military of Utovica. The structures among these wonders are rumored to be “indestructible”, but in reality, these constructs are built to withstand most disastrous scenarios, most notably nuclear weapons from enemy nations.
Great Monument Edit
Utovica Museum of Humanity
Museum City, Mallarta
The Utovican Forefathers had known for a long time that a large portion of citizens were wishing for a different type of a national government, most notably a monarchy and a dictatorship. But they knew very well the issues of having such governments. So they decided to build a grand museum complex that would display a nearly complete history of Earth and explain how Utovica's national government addresses the issues found with other governments. The museums present a nearly complete history of civilization on Earth. An attraction at the complex is a near-perfect duplicate of the Spaceship Earth ride at Earth’s Walt Disney World showcasing the history and development of communication.
Interstate System Edit
Utovica Transport Authority
The Utovican Forefathers and some of Utovica’s scientists laid out a massive project to allow goods and travelers to be transported throughout the nation with greater ease. Plans called for the development of electric automobiles, new highways, Maglev rail lines, and power utilities.
Utovica’s Interstate System has two major components: the Utovica Interstate Highway and a maglev railway known as the Utovica Maglev Network.
The Utovica Interstate Highway is a series of highways that connect all major cities with nearly all other cities in Utovica. The highways have 2-5 lanes per side. All roads developed for the system are made with Solar Road Panels that provide a road for vehicles, contain phone and internet lines for nearby homes, and provide renewable solar energy for most of the nation.
The Utovica Maglev Network is an extensive railroad that connects nearly every city and town in urban and rural areas. Some tracks have mounted solar panels to provide some energy for the system and nearby homes. This Maglev train system unites the nation in a way similar to nations that utilize airlines for domestic travel.
When put together, the Utovica Interstate Highway and the Utovica Maglev Network form an extensive network that connects most settlements in Utovica by road and rail.
To run the system, the Utovica Transport Authority was established. The Utovica Transport Authority, or UTA, is a government-run organization that is in charge of monitoring and maintaining this massive road and rail network that extends throughout Utovica.
Social Security Edit
Utovica Social Security System
The social security system allows for Utovica’s older citizens to save money for their retirement. A fraction of a citizen’s taxes is sent to his/her social security account in a special private bank run by the government. The Ministry of Finance makes sure that all Social Security funds are not used for endeavors or projects by the government.
Transportation in Utovica Edit
- Main article: Transportation in Utovica
Utovica is well known for its revolutionary sustainable transportation, allowing for people and resources to be moved easily with minimal amounts of nonrenewable resources like oil. Utovica primarily supports public transportation, emphasizing the use of buses, rail, and ferries, rather than automobiles and aircraft. Utovica has somewhat strict guidelines for vehicle emissions. Utovica drives on the right. Nearly all roads in Utovica’s cities and towns are pedestrian-friendly and bicycle-friendly.
Rather than asphalt and concrete, most of Utovica’s roads are made with Solar Road Panels that provide a driving surface for automobiles while at the same time provide solar energy and carry phone and internet lines for nearby homes. Almost a third of Utovica’s automobiles are electric rental cars mainly used for commuter travel. Utovica’s most famous mode of transportation is the nation’s extensive high-speed Maglev rail system.
Utovica highly disapproves of air travel because of the potential environmental and health risks associated with airliners. Because of their view of airliners and internal and international pressure, Utovica has a single massive airport that handles all international air travel to and from Utovica. For internal air travel, Utovica uses mainly tilt-rotor aircraft and dirigibles.
Energy in Utovica Edit
Utovica mainly uses renewable energy sources to power the nation most notably wind, solar, and hydro energy. Utovica also utilizes geothermal energy, biofuel and biomass. The use of nonrenewable energy is highly disapproved of in Utovica.
Science and TechnologyEdit
- Main article: Science and Technology in Utovica
Current Amount of Technology: 2,750.32
The vast majority of science and technology in Utovica is focused on green technology, communication, transportation, and renewable energy.
The Utovican Forefathers heard of numerous design and engineering proposals when they were on Earth. When they left Earth for Planet Bob, they brought whatever data about these innovations that they had with them. After 2 months, when the country became settled, they pushed for research into these marvels. These innovations improve life throughout Utovica.
Shimizu Mega-City PyramidEdit
The first innovation to be utilized by Utovica was a structure proposed by Earth’s Shimizu Corporation, the Mega-City Pyramid. Inspired by the Great Pyramid in Giza, this pyramid-shaped mega structure revolutionizes the concept of an urban city. Rather than staying horizontal like conventional, landscape cities, the pyramid is a three-dimensional construct, a intricate tubular geometry that hangs skyscrapers like peapods and extends horizontally and vertically. The key is the mega-trusses that are essentially the bones and the circulatory system of the pyramid, providing support and housing transportation. The megatrusses are made primarily of carbon-nanotubes, super-small, super-strong and super-light material that can last nearly forever, which dramatically decreases the material needed for the pyramid. Also because of the material, the megatrusses are hollow and support the pyramids revolutionary and automatic transportation. Replacing the need for automobiles and trains, the Mega-City Pyramid uses accelerating walkways, Personal Rapid Transit, elevators, and inclinators to rapidly and efficiently transport people and goods horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. With this hollow construction, skyscrapers can be freed from earthly constraints, avoid harming the land underneath, and assume almost any shape or form. The city is capable of generating its own power by use of wave turbines, biomass, algae, hydrogen fuel cells, wind power, and solar power. One pyramid city can produce an abundance of clean, renewable energy. Thanks to the carbon-nanotube construction, this mega-structure can withstand tsunamis and earthquakes. The Mega-City pyramid is a self-contained, self-sufficient city that can provide any person’s needs “from cradle to grave.”

The Earth German company Transrapid is responsible for the breakthroughs resulting in their revolutionary Magnetic Levitation, or MagLev, train. Instead of wheels, rails to ride on, and motor to propel the wheels, a MagLev train uses electromagnets to lift, guide, and propel the vehicle. Electromagnets would generate an EM field, or electromagnetic field, to lift the vehicle off the monorail track. Then alternating magnets would attract or repel the magnets on the vehicle, moving it down the track. With this contactless and frictionless movement, a MagLev train moves really fast. The only force opposing it is air resistance, and it requires minimal power.
