The Bread Loving Folk of Under Upper Antartica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Bread Mann with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.294 billion Under Upper Antarticans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Administration, Environment, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breadtown. The average income tax rate is 33.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Under Upper Antartican economy, worth 772 trillion People a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 145,911 People, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Under Upper Antartica, sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Under Upper Antartica's national animal is the Narwhale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Toast.

Under Upper Antartica is ranked 244,662nd in the world and 7,955th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 36.85 on the Human Development Index.
