The Supporters of Freedom Rising is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by CEO Robert Benton with a fair hand, and notable for its burgeoning eagle population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 10.872 billion Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philadelphia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 25.1%.

The thriving American economy, worth 707 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 65,088 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 186,383 per year while the poor average 18,093, a ratio of 10.3 to 1.

The annual budget is heralded by the Treasury Minister donning a fake plastic mustache and giant star-shaped glasses, giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular, cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, and bars are packed at all hours. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freedom Rising's national animal is the eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Freedom Rising is ranked 39,002nd in the world and 2nd in World Archive for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 1,411.96 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
