The JC Denton's United States of What a shame is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by JC Denton with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.444 billion Augs 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

Teenagers haven't been seen outdoors since the nation reconnected to the Internet, once-popular honeymoon destinations have become ghosts towns due to a lack of visitors, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and mandatory electronic currency is a boon for credit card companies and government surveillance. Crime is pervasive. What a shame's national animal is the Greasel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Freemasonry, and its currency is the Credit Chit.

What a shame is ranked 1,833rd in Osiris and 63,970th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 56 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
