The Armed Republic of The united states of the Metro is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Artyom Bridges with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.555 billion metroanics are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metro exchanger. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse metroan economy, worth 167 trillion Bullets and steel coins a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,782 Bullets and steel coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The united states of the Metro's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is whatever you want.

The united states of the Metro is ranked 192,704th in the world and 1,897th in 10000 Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
