Universal State Formula

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its parental licensing program, zero percent divorce rate, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.857 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 4,877 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 711,377 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, the new foreign policy is "why bother invading neighbours when they can be bought wholesale?", and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. 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 101,843rd in the world and 4,965th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 118.44 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
