The Federal Republic of United States of Medford is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by President Ugochukwu Kingsley with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 9.47 billion Medfordians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newice. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Medfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,921 trillion Medford Dollars a year, is quite specialized and 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 amazing 202,956 Medford Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lottery winners spend most of their money on security, Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, and the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Medford's national animal is the Medford, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church Of Medford.

United States of Medford is ranked 236,286th in the world and 12,262nd in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.46 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
