The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pectinidae Magnus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.197 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 government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. 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 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 498 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 155,987 Bronze Scallops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, going on a diet invalidates your passport, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. 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 41,928th in the world and 1,246th in The East Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,290.83 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
