The United States of Obamaca Paradiso is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by President Ronald Klump with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.776 billion Obamaca Paradisoans 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 Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Michelle. The average income tax rate is 38.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Obamaca Paradisoan economy, worth a remarkable 1,134 trillion Obamaca Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 116,059 Obamaca Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, most political debates are settled with fistfights, pre-schoolers who draw stick figures of their favorite celebrities are sued for infringing image rights, and the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Obamaca Paradiso's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Obamaca Paradiso is ranked 6,183rd in the world and 11th in The Radiant for Most Devout, with 2,659.72 Prayers Per Hour.
