The United States of Independy is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Michael Sullivan with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.977 billion Independians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portland. The average income tax rate is 9.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Independian economy, worth a remarkable 1,477 trillion Pacifician Union Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 164,556 Pacifician Union Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, babies are a small but significant export, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to Independy, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Independy's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Independy is ranked 11,712th in the world and 1st in Stars and Moon Region for Most Inclusive, scoring 166.36 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
