The Shareholder States of Washingtonian Republic is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Curtis Haas with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.217 billion Yankees are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.
The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria. The average income tax rate is 16.2%.
The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth a remarkable 1,358 trillion Phoenixes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 147,411 Phoenixes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.
Hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, the government is reining in public spending, and the nation is wading into dangerous waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Washingtonian Republic's national animal is the Aquila chrysaetos, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
