The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-working, democratic population of 586 million Under Sea Desertians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of We Get by Without One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 44.1%.

The all-consuming Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 69.6 trillion Bronze Scallops a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 118,714 Bronze Scallops, with the richest citizens earning 7.0 times as much as the poorest.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, the Under Sea Desertian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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.

Under Sea Desert is ranked 29,960th in the world and 991st in The East Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 4,748.9 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
