The Perpetual Union of Continental Free States is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Foresitter Ethelric Carl Milton with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.669 billion Americaners 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 relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. The average income tax rate is 42.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Americanish economy, worth 451 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 169,278 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Continental Free States's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christendom.

Continental Free States is ranked 185,131st in the world and 16th in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Most Extreme, scoring 15.8 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
