The American Dream of N1xon is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Richard Nixon's head with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.885 billion Dickers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yorba Linda. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Dicker economy, worth a remarkable 1,365 trillion tapes 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 black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, 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 an amazing 232,058 tapes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, N1xon's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, and produce labels read 'may contain traces of food'. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. N1xon's national animal is the Checkers, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Quakerism.

N1xon is ranked 176,097th in the world and 176th in Forest for Fattest Citizens, with 9.14 Obesity Rate.
