The United States of Wars Forever is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by CATS with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.137 billion Wars Foreverians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underground Ketchup. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Wars Foreverian economy, worth an astonishing 13,687 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is a breathtaking 544,505 dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,050,870 per year while the poor average 48,219, a ratio of 63.3 to 1.

Biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements, small shoes often wash up on the beach, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, and the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Wars Forever's national animal is the Giant enemy crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Wars Forever is ranked 38,184th in the world and 39th in Wysteria for Most Developed, scoring 70.63 on the Human Development Index.
