The Union of Commonwealths of America is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Samantha Smith with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.708 billion Americans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. The average income tax rate is 85.5%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 349 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 204,821 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, out-of-work actors say they can't complain, and turnstile jumpers grow up to be tax cheats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Commonwealths of America's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Commonwealths of America is ranked 262,075th in the world and 11,421st in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -14.99 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
