The United States of Ump235 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its aversion to nipples, fear of technology, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.73 billion Ump235ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Administration, although Law & Order, Industry, and Defense are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 70.0%.

The all-consuming Ump235ian economy, worth 108 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,467 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ump235's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Ump235 is ranked 12,841st in the world and 760th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Black Market, with 62.0 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
