The Eldritch Commonwealth of Uberwald is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Patrician Vetinari with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 42.65 billion Uberwaldians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonk. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The large but stagnant Uberwaldian economy, worth 578 trillion phoenix downs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 13,574 phoenix downs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, students abandon classrooms for online education, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Uberwald. Crime is totally unknown. Uberwald's national animal is the vampire bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uberwald is ranked 1,918th in the world and 1st in Uberwald for Smartest Citizens, with 185.45 quips per hour.
