Universal State Formula

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.909 billion citizens of Universal State Formula 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, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 2,259 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 577,948 Standard Monetary Units, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount City Prime make great practice for foreign snipers, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment, and mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Universal State Formula is ranked 169,714th in the world and 9,145th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 11.61 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
