The Eldritch Commonwealth of Uberwald is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Patrician Vetinari with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 41.002 billion Uberwaldians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonk. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The large but stagnant Uberwaldian economy, worth 556 trillion phoenix downs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 13,574 phoenix downs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, students abandon classrooms for online education, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Uberwald. Crime is totally unknown. Uberwald's national animal is the vampire bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Uberwald is ranked 3,558th in the world and 1st in Uberwald for Nicest Citizens, with 50.2 average smiles per day.
