The Thomistic Republic of United Massachusetts is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cardinal Alexander Sullivan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 7.356 billion Bay Staters 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Boston. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bay Statian economy, worth a remarkable 1,230 trillion LifeMarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,326 LifeMarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, there's a lot of mouth-breathers about these days, and frat-house partying has become the national pastime. Crime is totally unknown. United Massachusetts's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Massachusetts is ranked 5,586th in the world and 6th in Right to Life for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,142.49 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
