The Controlled people of RetroAmerica is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Allseer with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.66 billion RetroAmericans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A3x-34b. The average income tax rate is 52.0%.

The powerhouse RetroAmerican economy, worth 424 trillion Virtual Currenieses a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 115,911 Virtual Currenieses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?", nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, and children are expected to carve their own toys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RetroAmerica's national animal is the Pigeon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

RetroAmerica is ranked 13,926th in the world and 692nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 6,449.08 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
