The Union of City States Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by JR Ewing with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.982 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 6,478 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 405,389 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There's an aura of pseudoscience around academia, returning vacationers often find that their property is now a construction site, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime is a major problem, 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.
