The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.908 billion Expanseans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 3,341 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 258,878 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 171,005th in the world and 7,625th in the South Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.26 Kickbacks Per Hour.
