The United States of Continental Free States is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Harold McGuire with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.16 billion Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.2%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 172 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 148,776 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,938 per year while the poor average 41,779, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, and pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, 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 Christianity.

Continental Free States is ranked 2,271st in the world and 2nd in The United Islands of the Atlantic for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 12,302.83 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
