The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pectinidae Magnus with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.351 billion Under Sea Desertians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of - oh thats right - they don't have one. The average income tax rate is 83.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 352 trillion Bronze Scallops a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,954 Bronze Scallops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, political hopefuls must announce their intentions decades in advance to accommodate extensive background checks, ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Under Sea Desert's national animal is the Scallop, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is anybody's guess.

Under Sea Desert is ranked 36,496th in the world and 725th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 403.9478664732 Days.
