The United and Free States of Unterlander
“The Land of The Truly Free, Dammit”
|Category: Father Knows Best State|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The United and Free States of Unterlander is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Senator with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.369 billion Unterlanderians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt von Jesus Christus. The average income tax rate is 26.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Unterlanderian economy, worth 97.5 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 71,205 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The government pours millions of marks into rehabilitation programs annually, a surprising number of police officers have been arrested for eagle sacrifices, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unterlander's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Protestantism.
