The Empire of The United Empire States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Preston III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.591 billion United Empire Statesians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beverley City. The average income tax rate is 51.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving United Empire Statesian economy, worth 143 trillion Imperial Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,984 Imperial Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, the military conducts 'training exercises' in prisons, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, and Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Beverley City to enjoy their national art. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Empire States's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The United Empire States is ranked 21,332nd in the world and 83rd in New Western Empire for Highest Poor Incomes, with 70,535.22 Standard Monetary Units.
