The United States of Printer454 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its aversion to nipples, public floggings, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.554 billion Printer454ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.8%.

The Printer454ian economy, worth 60.9 trillion cards a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,160 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, the Printer454ian cut of Apocalypse Now sets the helicopter scene to eerie silence, newspapers print only headlines, and a driving license is obtained not by passing a test but by passing a brown envelope. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Printer454's national animal is the legendary.

Printer454 is ranked 107,694th in the world and 584th in Big Farma for Fattest Citizens, with 9.98 Obesity Rate.
