The Combined Syndicates of The USOT is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vox Populi with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 6.799 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Deleonshire. The average income tax rate is 98%. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Book Publishing.
The government pours millions of Credits into rehabilitation programs annually, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown. The USOT's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Pantheism, and its currency is the Credit.
