|Leader||Grand Admiral Underwood|
The Confederated City-States of The Underwood Industrial Empire is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Underwood with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 7.794 billion UIE citizens are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwood City. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient UIE economy, worth 870 trillion UIE dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,708 UIE dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The lactose-intolerant are force-fed cheese products with predictably gassy results, fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Underwood Industrial Empire's national animal is the cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
