The United States of Appalcadia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President McClellan with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.014 billion Appalcadians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sealth. The average income tax rate is 34.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Appalcadian economy, worth 238 trillion Cliks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 118,230 Cliks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Appalcadian Embarrassments, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, prime picnicking sites are being paved over in the name of progress, and groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Appalcadia's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Appalcadia is ranked 12,027th in the world and 2nd in Appalcadia for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 8,086.32 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
