The Confederated City-States of The Underwood Industrial Empire is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Underwood with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, avant-garde cinema, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 8.519 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, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwood City. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient UIE economy, worth 959 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 112,677 UIE dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Child shoplifters spend half their youth behind bars, arbitration is mightier than the sword, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, and the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands. 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 149,770th in the world and 6,496th in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.44 on the Rand Index.
