The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 17.731 billion Expanseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of National City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient United Expansean economy, worth a remarkable 4,745 trillion United Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 267,617 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is avowedly secular, party affiliation is just as irrelevant as campaign promises, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Expanse's national animal is the White Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

The United Expanse is ranked 128th in the world and 10th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 99.62 years.
