The Perpetual Union of North America and the Great Lakes is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by President Franklin York with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.339 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 2,447 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 159,562 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. 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 9,884th in the world and 1st in Novum Infinitum for Safest, scoring 120.07 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
