The United States of Elevation is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.322 billion Elevationians 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Defence, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beacon Heights. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, meat-eating is frowned upon, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Elevation's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Bottle Cap.

Elevation is ranked 4,901st in The North Pacific and 117,648th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring -9 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
