The American Confederate States of Whitelake is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Peter Eagleford with an even hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.765 billion Whitelakeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Religion & Spirituality, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Information Technology and Retail.

Army rations are served on silver platters, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', there are no minimum wage laws, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Whitelake's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity, and its currency is the Dollar.

Whitelake is ranked 54th in Balder and 1,446th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 358 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
