Under Upper Antartica

The Bread Loving Folk of Under Upper Antartica is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Bread Mann with an even hand, and renowned for its feral children, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.69 billion Under Upper Antarticans 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Law & Order and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breadtown. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Upper Antartican economy, worth a remarkable 1,806 trillion People 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 an amazing 234,916 People, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Garishly-decorated government buildings are being hailed as the height of 'religious nouveau', immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Under Upper Antartica's national animal is the Narwhale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Toast.

Under Upper Antartica is ranked 12,590th in the world and 629th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 87.59 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
