The United Socialist Republics of Provincial America is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 721 million 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 Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 37.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 65.1 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,298 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the American language, the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, an enfeebled opposition party spends most of its time simply trying to stay on the ballot, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Provincial America is ranked 86,576th in the world and 199th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 584.4 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
