The United States of Actias is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Charles Yates with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.842 billion Actians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Secaucus. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Actian economy, worth a remarkable 1,035 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,047 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The only soporific permitted during sermons is the preacher's voice, President Charles Yates has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and there's an aura of pseudoscience around academia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Actias's national animal is the Abyssal Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ascensionism.

Actias is ranked 232,298th in the world and 233rd in Thaecia for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.88 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
