The United States of Supercarriers is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Chester William Nimitz with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.135 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, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alaska-Miami District Columbia. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Supercarrierian economy, worth 823 trillion aircraft carrier armadas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,126 aircraft carrier armadas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, millions of devastated 7-year-olds are denied astronaut and ballerina training, and being able to unblock a u-bend pipe is considered a universally essential skill. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Supercarriers's national animal is the bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Supercarriers is ranked 142,036th in the world and 7,474th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 13.19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
