The United States of Adelanto is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cam Washington with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 2.679 billion Adelantoans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apple Valley. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Adelantoan economy, worth 183 trillion adelantoain dollars 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, 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 68,552 adelantoain dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is quite common for bar patrons to discuss Wittgenstein over cordials and games of backgammon, Cam Washington's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and the news is showing footage of Cam Washington bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adelanto's national animal is the doge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Adelanto is ranked 142,161st in the world and 10th in The Grand New Republic for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.22 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
