The Union of Socialist Councils of The Civitas Islands is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Premier William Hammond with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.908 billion Civitas Islanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Civitasium. The average income tax rate is 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Civitan economy, worth 375 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 129,224 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national security service are a bunch of crooks, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, stolen Reuben sandwiches are met with detailed and thorough police investigations, and retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Civitas Islands's national animal is the Island Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

The Civitas Islands is ranked 11,309th in the world and 7th in Union of Allied States for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 1,589.36 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
