Universal State Formula

Population6.32 billion

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, vat-grown people, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.32 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, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 4,404 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 696,869 Standard Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Employees who skip lunch to avoid sub-par cafeteria food risk getting fired, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 1,805th in the world and 111th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 94.09 Years.
