The Greater United States of Deplorable America is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Stephen Hudson with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.172 billion Americans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 28.8%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 139 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 119,073 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 459,577 per year while the poor average 21,194, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deplorable America's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Evangelical Christianity.

Deplorable America is ranked 126,683rd in the world and 109th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.74 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
