The American Confederate States of Whitelake is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Peter Eagleford with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.625 billion, 5.718 billion of whom are zombies, Whitelakeans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, Whitelake-made cars tend to catch fire in people's driveways, mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. 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 3,404th in Balder and 113,021st in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -92 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.

Whitelake is currently considering its options.
