The United States of Paramountica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Edward Moore Kennedy with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.689 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 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Paramerican economy, worth a remarkable 5,383 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 424,283 United States Dollar $s, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,597,630 per year while the poor average 78,571, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and the nation leads Commonwealth of Liberty in per capita stalking. 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 11,455th in the world and 9th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Populations, with 12.7 billion Capita.
