The Colony of Nether Entroterraneo is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 338 million Entroterranean Settlers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rubrum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Entroterranean settler economy, worth 31.4 trillion Entroterranean Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 93,006 Entroterranean Lire, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 661,050 per year while the poor average 4,337, a ratio of 152 to 1.

Government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, the only thing that can pin down a "superhero" is red tape, and schoolchildren learn basic numeracy by counting off their push-ups. Crime is moderate. Nether Entroterraneo's national animal is the Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nether Entroterraneo is ranked 34,662nd in the world and 1st in mutual cooperation alliance for Fattest Citizens, with 14.1 Obesity Rate.
