The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.843 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 4,513 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 267,952 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and refugees from other nations are flocking to The United Expanse's border. 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 115th in the world and 6th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 40,086.16 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
