The Union of City States Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by JR Ewing with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, unlimited-speed roads, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.555 billion City Staters 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, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reading. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient City States Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 6,276 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 403,510 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Gift baskets often contain working nukes, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, major cities run on potato batteries, and it's not only teenagers who mess around with fake IDs. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. City States Nation's national animal is the Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Industrialism.

City States Nation is ranked 38,729th in the world and 1,240th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,204.73 on the Edu-tellignceŽ Test Score.
