The Democratic States of Postauthoritarian America is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 660 million Postauthoritarian Americans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chisholm City. The average income tax rate is 64.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Postauthoritarian American economy, worth 15.9 trillion Tubmen a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is 24,158 Tubmen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Postauthoritarian America's national animal is the Peaceful Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Postauthoritarian America is ranked 55,206th in the world and 1,862nd in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.67 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
