The United States of Independence Hill is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Laramie S Frost with a fair hand, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.483 billion New Americans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cannabis Court DC. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New American economy, worth 231 trillion Universal Treasury Notes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,329 Universal Treasury Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, copyright laws have been abolished, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Independence Hill's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom from and of religion.

Independence Hill is ranked 23,432nd in the world and 1st in Independence Hill for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,313.16 Tourists Per Hour.
