Federal Remnants

The United States of Federal Remnants is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 245 million Americans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.9%.

The powerhouse Federal Remnantsian economy, worth 22.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 89,937 dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 813,990 per year while the poor average 1,180, a ratio of 689 to 1.

New urban roads are threatening city parks, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, and no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Federal Remnants's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Federal Remnants is ranked 184,943rd in the world and 8,346th in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 25.81 Insults Per Minute.
