The Commonwealth that was there of United Massachusetts is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cardinal Alexander Sullivan with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.283 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 prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Boston. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Bay Statian economy, worth a remarkable 1,020 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 162,457 LifeMarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Museum of Blackacrean War Crimes is located on "Blackacre Did Nothing Wrong Avenue", the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and when electric cars arrived nobody heard them coming. 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 135,198th in the world and 58th in Right to Life for Most Pro-Market, scoring 18.22 on the Rand Index.
