The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Pectinidae Magnus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.39 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. 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 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 358 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 150,019 Bronze Scallops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, Pectinidae Magnus's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and there is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Under Sea Desertian grocery store. 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 76,548th in the world and 3,064th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,842.16 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
