The Unholy Underwall Underhell of D026 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Doctor Wu with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.925 billion Katydids are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Biscayne Bay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.1%.

The frighteningly efficient chirpy economy, worth 470 trillion Banks a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 95,438 Banks, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

Doctor Wu is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, believers who wear their faith on their sleeves make easy targets in hostile areas, organ donation is compulsory, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. D026's national animal is the Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Steely Dan.

D026 is ranked 57,286th in the world and 50th in Windows for Most Secular, with 25 Atheism Rate.
