The Republic of The Tri State Area and Maine is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Joe Smith with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.432 billion Tri State Area and Maineans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tri State Area and Mainean economy, worth 413 trillion Values a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,475 Values, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Joe Smith's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tri State Area and Maine's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Lazarusism.

The Tri State Area and Maine is ranked 21,225th in the world and 1,158th in Lazarus for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 237.01 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
