The American Powerhouse

The Holy Empire of The American Powerhouse is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory gun ownership, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.491 billion Americans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.8%.

The frighteningly efficient American Powerhousean economy, worth 386 trillion USDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 155,053 USDS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 712,111 per year while the poor average 20,485, a ratio of 34.8 to 1.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, and the country is littered with broken homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The American Powerhouse's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The American Powerhouse is ranked 83,110th in the world and 3,765th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,961.56 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
