The United States of The Ancient World is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Matt Leaf with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.839 billion Ancient Worldians 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trinity. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ancient Worldian economy, worth 883 trillion Shales a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 151,324 Shales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ancient World's national animal is the Boa Constrictor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Ancient World is ranked 5th in Icarus and 6,829th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 594.65 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
