The United Republics of Omerica is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Julie Thibault with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.696 billion Omericans 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, although Administration, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port-des-Saints. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Omerican economy, worth a remarkable 1,182 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,922 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The official Omerican Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown. Omerica's national animal is the griffon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Omerica is ranked 198,994th in the world and 30th in United Republics for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.62 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
