The Royal American Commonwealth

Population273 million


The United States of The Royal American Commonwealth is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 273 million Americans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.

The strong American economy, worth 12.0 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 43,919 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 198,527 per year while the poor average 5,972, a ratio of 33.2 to 1.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Royal American Commonwealth's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Royal American Commonwealth is ranked 115,877th in the world and 2,152nd in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 12.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
