The United States of Super Americana is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Raymond Ames Spruance with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.971 billion Super Americans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Super American economy, worth 564 trillion US dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 189,929 US dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, the government tries to improve relations with hostile countries by sending gift baskets, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Super Americana's national animal is the Super bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Super Americana is ranked 4,723rd in the world and 288th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.95 on the Human Development Index.
