The United States of I 8 is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, triple-decker prams, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 540 million Highways are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yuma. The average income tax rate is 25.3%.

The strong Paved economy, worth 33.8 trillion tolls a year, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 62,670 tolls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, the I 8 Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and planespotters are emigrating in droves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. I 8's national animal is the Bluebird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

I 8 is ranked 124,127th in the world and 6th in Arizona for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -1.4 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
