The United States of Filipopol is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 250 million Filipopolians 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 large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Public Transport isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 56.5%.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Filipopolian economy, worth 7.99 trillion Levas 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 31,952 Levas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Shock troops shock enemy forces with their nudity, kids refer to anything below the neck as "the parts that shall not be named", a government program is underway to revitalize Filipopol's beaches, and the nation's coasts have been left unprotected while the entire navy sits in Brasilistani waters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Filipopol's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Filipopol is ranked 40,261st in the world and 1,509th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 76.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
