The United States of Paramountica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Richard M Nixon with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.512 billion Americans 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. The average income tax rate is 17.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth an astonishing 10,896 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 large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 444,524 United States Dollar $s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 6,669th in the world and 8th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 563,233 Standard Monetary Units.
