The Empire of Untecna is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Yano Windvaren with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.197 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 is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iyo Lixes. The average income tax rate is 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Untecnan economy, worth a remarkable 1,228 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, 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 292,679 Zarians, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Iyo Lixes to enjoy their national art, recapturing giraffes is proving to be a tall order, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Fare'ea Lok.

Untecna is ranked 214,365th in the world and 127th in Institute of Cellulose for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
