The United States of The Ancient World is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Matt Leaf with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.639 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 97.8%.
The frighteningly efficient Ancient Worldian economy, worth a remarkable 1,240 trillion Shales a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 162,328 Shales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is seen to favor Catholics, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, The Ancient World successfully hosted the Icarus Olympics, and voting is voluntary. 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.
