The Bread Loving Folk of Under Upper Antartica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Bread Mann with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, fear of technology, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.778 billion Under Upper Antarticans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Law & Order and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Breadtown. The average income tax rate is 37.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Under Upper Antartican economy, worth 541 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, Gambling, and Retail. 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 143,442 People, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fat-shaming is now public policy, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", Bread Mann is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. 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 136,941st in the world and 5,200th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 47.62 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
