Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Republic of Usfolk is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 7.028 billion Usfolkians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Education, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brain. The average income tax rate is 25.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Usfolkian economy, worth 846 trillion cogs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 120,419 cogs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, Leader's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, and mothers drive their college-graduate children to work. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Usfolk's national animal is the Mutt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Usfolk is ranked 16,499th in the world and 4th in Fellowship of Free Nations for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 227.37 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
