The Technocratic Autocracy of Subterannia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Council of Elders with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 19.238 billion Subterannians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gear City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Subterannian economy, worth an astonishing 12,803 trillion Straits Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 665,505 Straits Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, the Subterannia Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and rumour has it the Council of Elders needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Subterannia's national animal is the Herring, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Gearism.

Subterannia is ranked 3,023rd in the world and 3rd in GTA Forums for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 21,266.42 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
