The Republic of United Sentinel States is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Benson with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 7.155 billion United Sentinel Statesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aurora. The average income tax rate is 47.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Sentinel Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,274 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 178,124 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, and the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. United Sentinel States's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Deus Vult.

United Sentinel States is ranked 6,561st in the world and 7th in Union of Allied States for Most Developed, scoring 92.61 on the Human Development Index.
