The Strength of The United Universe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Benica with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 4.426 billion Defenders are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defender City. The average income tax rate is 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Defender economy, worth 545 trillion Paper Lions a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,281 Paper Lions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, the sun now sets on the Defender Empire, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The United Universe's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Defenderism.

The United Universe is ranked 5,531st in the world and 4th in Shinka for Nudest, with 1,117.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
