|Leader||President Howard Taft|
The United States of America AU is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Howard Taft with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.891 billion Americans 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 28.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 1,055 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,230 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
Childhood friends of President Howard Taft are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, job opportunities abound in the Hole Recycling industry, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. America AU's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestantism.
