The Shipwreck of USS Monitor is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lt John L Worden with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and complete absence of social welfare. The devout population of 5.869 billion crewmen 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 6.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Monitorian economy, worth 220 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,625 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, and billion-dollar sentient AI killbots roll through the streets dispensing hot dogs and T-shirts. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. USS Monitor's national animal is the powder monkey.

USS Monitor is ranked 80,353rd in the world and 11th in North Carolina for Most Cultured, scoring 66 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
