The Sublime Patriarchy of Subterrania is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Secondo Doubletree with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.596 billion Terranians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Blessingdale. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Subterranian economy, worth 436 trillion Uboes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,185 Uboes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 578,986 per year while the poor average 35,794, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

Access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, and street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Subterrania's national animal is the Churokee, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Mendulio.

Subterrania is ranked 45,422nd in the world and 1st in Aureola for Highest Economic Output, with 436 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
