The United States of North America and the Great Lakes is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Zachary Harrington with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.855 billion Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 3,228 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 171,203 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, a formerly quiet little town is now booming as both a cult centre and a tourist attraction, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an 'Air Brancaland' flight has been offered asylum, and most believe 'tis better to give than to receive. Crime is totally unknown. North America and the Great Lakes's national animal is the bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the freedom of religion.

North America and the Great Lakes is ranked 169,659th in the world and 17th in The New Horizon for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -8.58 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
