The Federal Republic of United States of Natan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Nicole Gross with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.905 billion Natanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rodham. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Natanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,654 trillion Natals a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,990 Natals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lending money has become a major liability, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Natan's national animal is the Natanian Red lab, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Judaism.

United States of Natan is ranked 35,954th in the world and 3rd in Natan Region for Most Authoritarian, with 0.83 Stalins.
