Welcome to the game! We'll try not to make it particularly stressful for you. Utgard's in a pretty good position as far as I can tell you're doing pretty well on province number and dominion, but your research, number of forts, gem income, and army size are fairly small. However, your income's really high compared to most other nations and you have 3 turns of staled income to work with, so you should be able to catch up to where you want to be relatively quickly. You're not at war with Bogarus, but I can't speak for other nations. As far as I know the only nation Utgard might have ticked off is Patala, maybe R'lyeh, but I didn't think there was an actual war happening yet.
