The United and Free States of Unterlander is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by the Patriots with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.309 billion Unterlanderians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stadt von Neu Manhattan. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Unterlanderian economy, worth 371 trillion marks a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,055 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, cyclists spend more time unlocking their bicycles than they do cycling, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unterlander's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Unterlander is ranked 33,349th in the world and 1,213th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 87.31 years.
