The Confederacy of The American Enlightenment is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 233 million Americans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.8%.

The all-consuming American economy, worth 18.8 trillion dalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 80,693 dalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 311,444 per year while the poor average 14,363, a ratio of 21.7 to 1.

Sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and newly-peaceful nations are forced to use assault rifles as farming tools due to a lack of funds for purchasing anything else. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The American Enlightenment's national animal is the bison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The American Enlightenment is ranked 65,659th in the world and 11th in Pecan Sandies for Most Authoritarian, with 858.33 milliStalins.
