The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.616 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 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 2,946 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 253,696 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of The United Expanse's radio stations, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. 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 147,111th in the world and 6,309th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 41.19 Whatever.
