The United Scientific States of Upper Terraria is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President McKay with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.427 billion Upper Terrarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hallow. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The strong Upper Terrarian economy, worth 249 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 102,781 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, foreign musicians that President McKay dislikes are turned away at the border, posters remind people that 'Hoarding Mushrooms Is Theft', and drunk drivers are sentenced to death. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Upper Terraria's national animal is the rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Upper Terraria is ranked 2,549th in the world and 101st in Lazarus for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 85.29 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
