Under Upper Antartica

Population5.922 billion

LeaderBread Mann


The Bread Loving Folk of Under Upper Antartica is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bread Mann with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ritual sacrifices, and feral children. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 5.922 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, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breadtown. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Upper Antartican economy, worth a remarkable 1,057 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, Retail, Tourism, 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 impressive 178,647 People, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Few that venture into government archives are ever seen again, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision. 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 1,357th in the world and 30th in The East Pacific for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 74,756.64 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
