The Dominion of Under Sea Desert is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pectinidae Magnus with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.818 billion Under Sea Desertians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of - oh thats right - they don't have one. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Under Sea Desertian economy, worth 433 trillion Bronze Scallops a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,770 Bronze Scallops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Internet sites are legally unable to stop their users from posting pornography, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Under Sea Desert's national animal is the Scallop, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is anybody's guess.

Under Sea Desert is ranked 2,422nd in the world and 133rd in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 38,689 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
