The Confederated City-States of The Underwood Industrial Empire is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Underwood with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 11.306 billion UIE citizens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underwood City. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient UIE economy, worth a remarkable 1,326 trillion UIE dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 117,339 UIE dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, a child's only Trickster Night scare is the sight of their parents dancing, and the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Underwood Industrial Empire's national animal is the cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Underwood Industrial Empire is ranked 1,410th in the world and 55th in The East Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 192.05 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
