Universal State Formula

Population8.01 billion

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.01 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 5,842 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 729,368 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, Leader's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies. 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 238,087th in the world and 9,148th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 6.03 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
