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 remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.265 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, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology industries.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and membership in the state-owned Church of What a shame is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned. Crime is pervasive. What a shame's national animal is the Paul Denton, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Freemasonry, and its currency is the Shame.

What a shame is ranked 113th in Osiris and 3,516th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
