The Confederated City-States of The Underwood Industrial Empire is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Underwood with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 10.069 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 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 1,185 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 117,753 UIE dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling dibs is an unalienable right, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. 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 4,113th in the world and 113th in The East Pacific for Safest, scoring 130.74 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
