The Holy Empire of Under Upper Antartica is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Bread Mann with an even hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.072 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 large government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Law & Order receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breadtown. The average income tax rate is 58.4%.

The powerhouse Under Upper Antartican economy, worth 202 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 a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. 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 97,499 People, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Religious classes are compulsory for all school students, crayon squiggles were a late addition to the works of the Renaissance Old Masters, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 161,774th in the world and 7,117th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.05 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
