The Germanic Queensland of United Geronimo States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Samantha Krovelex with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.436 billion Geronimoians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fawkxark. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Geronimoian economy, worth 693 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 156,356 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 557,383 per year while the poor average 31,547, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

First-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one, bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and vacationing Geronimoians expect to be treated as royalty. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Geronimo States's national animal is the Angler Fish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

United Geronimo States is ranked 2,769th in the world and 1st in The Remnant of Alkmon for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 10,928.08 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
