The United Federation of Subhurbia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by King Sovereign Adom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 9.509 billion Suhurbians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atlas. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Suhurbian economy, worth 862 trillion credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,754 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

When electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, the government nonchalantly sells old nukes to other countries, and fat-shaming is now public policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Subhurbia's national animal is the Serpent, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Omnism.

Subhurbia is ranked 236,043rd in the world and 287th in Spiritus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
