The United States of Supercarriers is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Chester William Nimitz with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.556 billion Supercarrierians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alaska-Miami District Columbia. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Supercarrierian economy, worth 466 trillion aircraft carrier armadas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 182,399 aircraft carrier armadas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, atheist missionaries spread doubt overseas, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, and the comic book series 'President Chester William Nimitz and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Supercarriers's national animal is the bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Supercarriers is ranked 65,254th in the world and 3,596th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 64.41 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
