The United Socialist Republics of Provincial America is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by President Leonard Davos with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.295 billion Americans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 41.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 132 trillion Dollars 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 Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. 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 impressive 102,694 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, and the government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Provincial America's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Provincial America is ranked 160,363rd in the world and 186th in Enadia for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.04 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
