The Commonwealth of Nu-Amerika is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 124 million Amerikans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The thriving Nu-Amerikan economy, worth 8.19 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 66,038 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 217,632 per year while the poor average 15,003, a ratio of 14.5 to 1.

Authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, lending firms are subject to strict government regulations, immigrants who don't like the taste of Nu-Amerikan Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense. Crime is a problem. Nu-Amerika's national animal is the Coyote, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Nu-Amerika is ranked 115,678th in the world and 4,385th in the Pacific for Most Secular, with 16.56 Atheism Rate.
