The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.266 billion Expanseans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — 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 2,902 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 257,631 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Landless farmers wander forlornly in the government's many national parks, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, glamping Expanseans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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 153,186th in the world and 6,322nd in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -53.55 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
