The Empire of Americatain is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Federal Council of Americatain with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.368 billion Tainians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Londinium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Americatainian economy, worth 230 trillion Careuses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 168,337 Careuses, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is now proudly cholera-free, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and all-natural foods are becoming a major fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Americatain's national animal is the White Pelican, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Americatain is ranked 19,283rd in the world and 25th in South Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 26.7 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
