The Corporate States of Washingtonian Republic is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Francis Reagan with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 5.413 billion Americans are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The all-consuming American economy, worth 746 trillion Sestertiuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 137,910 Sestertiuses, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 764,604 per year while the poor average 12,502, a ratio of 61.2 to 1.

The homeless more often beg for mercy than money, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Washingtonian Republic's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Washingtonian Republic is ranked 5,577th in the world and 4th in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 16 Valid Endorsements.
