The Incorporated States of MexUsCan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Esteban IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.34 billion MexUsCan citizens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Disney World. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MexUsCanian economy, worth 662 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,716 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across MexUsCan, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and the MexUsCanian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MexUsCan's national animal is the Dachshund, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Agnosticism.

MexUsCan is ranked 5,627th in the world and 10th in The Free Nations Region for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 60.3 Whatever.
