The United States of United Nations Space Defense Ring is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Shōkaku and Valeriy with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.566 billion Shock Troopers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Moscow. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The frighteningly efficient United Nations Space Defense Ringian economy, worth a remarkable 2,646 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 228,839 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', treason is relative, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Nations Space Defense Ring's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Leader Worship.

United Nations Space Defense Ring is ranked 136,333rd in the world and 36th in Independent Order for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 624.95 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
