13 colonies and 1 president

Population307 million


The United States of 13 colonies and 1 president is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 307 million mr robotos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong 13 colonies and 1 presidentian economy, worth 21.1 trillion dracmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 68,662 dracmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, the canal flows through the land like a twisty turny thing, scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, and radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 13 colonies and 1 president's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

13 colonies and 1 president is ranked 13,269th in the world and 4th in Aelstun for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 5,387.28 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
