The American Confederate States of Whitelake is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Peter Eagleford with an even hand, and remarkable for its conspicuous electricity pylons, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 12.5 billion Whitelakeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Whitelakean economy, worth a remarkable 3,985 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 318,822 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,382,022 per year while the poor average 46,704, a ratio of 29.6 to 1.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, libraries are refusing to stock A Midsummer Night's Dream because it has an ass in it, and busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Whitelake's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Christianity.

Whitelake is ranked 11,124th in the world and 306th in Osiris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 29.59 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
