The United States of America of Selviand is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Harry Truman with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.866 billion Americans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.9%.
The strong American economy, worth 92.7 trillion United States Dollars a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 49,679 United States Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 143,133 per year while the poor average 13,692, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.
President Harry Truman has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, Good Stuff that most people like has been named as Selviand's national religion, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Selviand's national animal is the Bison and its national religion is Good Stuff that most people like.
