The United States of Field Marshals
“Negative. I have the gun. Good luck sir.”

The United States of Field Marshals is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 779 million Marshals enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 9.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Marshalian economy, worth 61.1 trillion USDS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Average income is 78,479 USDS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Marshalian Navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Field Marshals's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
