The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Pectinidae Magnus with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.31 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 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 345 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 149,768 Bronze Scallops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, getting an infected tattoo is considered a rite of passage in Under Sea Desert, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and it's been a banner year for local vexillology. 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 6,114th in the world and 173rd in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.04 Years.
