The Confederated City-States of The Underwood Industrial Empire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Underwood with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 10.32 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 government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwood City. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient UIE economy, worth a remarkable 1,218 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 118,068 UIE dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primary candidates are replaced if they fail to compliment Grand Admiral Underwood's hair, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and citizens must inform the government each time they have a haircut. 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.

The Underwood Industrial Empire is ranked 205,376th in the world and 8,016th in The East Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.28 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
