The United States of Amarique is a very large, cultured nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 157 million Amariqueans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The very strong Amariquean economy, worth 9.63 trillion US Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 61,308 US Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 186,011 per year while the poor average 15,708, a ratio of 11.8 to 1.

People are bored of easy crossword puzzles, many believe that the only good Bald eagle is a dead Bald eagle, no one knows how to tie a reef knot, and the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Amarique's national animal is the Bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Amarique is ranked 73,959th in the world and 647th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 78.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
