The Syndicalist Republic of United Syndicalist States of America is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 519 million Americans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 49.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong American economy, worth 40.6 trillion American Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,297 American Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police have been known to wiretap confessional boxes, claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Syndicalist States of America's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

United Syndicalist States of America is ranked 81,738th in the world and 3,413th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,011.41 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
