The Republic of Northeast American Federation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Anthony Williams with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, parental licensing program, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.394 billion Americans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.7%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 754 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 222,337 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 741,248 per year while the poor average 49,654, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northeast American Federation's national animal is the bald eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Northeast American Federation is ranked 2,682nd in the world and 98th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 208.21 Kickbacks Per Hour.
