The Democratic States of Council of America is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by President Wiemold with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 793 million Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming American economy, worth 107 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 135,784 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Council of America's border, children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Council of America's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Council of America is ranked 16,817th in the world and 291st in The Communist Bloc for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.55 years.
