The United States of Paramountica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President George Herbert Walker Bush with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 13.762 billion Paramericans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Paramerican economy, worth a remarkable 5,836 trillion United States Dollar $s a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 424,083 United States Dollar $s, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,544,711 per year while the poor average 82,753, a ratio of 18.7 to 1.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Paramountica's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Paramountica is ranked 171,553rd in the world and 212th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -53.39 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
