The Not Dead Yet of Usniya is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Usniyan People's Party with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.657 billion Usniyans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vlastiyavek. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Usniyan economy, worth 780 trillion Usniyets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 138,031 Usniyets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Usniya's national animal is the Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Usniya is ranked 15,505th in the world and 40th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Influential, scoring 1,765 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
