The Imperial Grace of Untecna is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Yano Windvaren with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.758 billion Untecnans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iyo Lixes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Untecnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,626 trillion Zarians 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, 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 341,848 Zarians, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,020,967 per year while the poor average 89,572, a ratio of 11.4 to 1.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days, the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams, and new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Untecna's national animal is the Skeik, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Fare'ea Lok.

Untecna is ranked 72,148th in the world and 49th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,157.4 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
