The Republic of Intermountain States is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President George Costanza with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.043 billion Americans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The powerhouse Intermountain Statesian economy, worth 808 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 114,854 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Intermountain Statesian beaches, polite commuters on the DC Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Intermountain States's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Intermountain States is ranked 33,664th in the world and 4th in Ordis for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,414.69 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
