The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 740 million 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 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. The average income tax rate is 56.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 88.4 trillion Bronze Scallops a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 119,423 Bronze Scallops, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, armed war-criminals gain asylum if deemed 'fabulous' enough, every week is blindness awareness week, and children entertain themselves by throwing rocks through the windows of world-class museums. 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 74,530th in the world and 3,297th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 33.73 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
