The United Stratocratic States of The Strategic Air Command is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Curtis LeMay with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.03 billion Airmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Offutt Air Force Base. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.5%.

The frighteningly efficient SAC economy, worth an astonishing 32,189 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is a breathtaking 1,236,647 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,671,910 per year while the poor average 118,947, a ratio of 56.1 to 1.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, political activists are routinely executed, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, and the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Airmen any less frightened. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Strategic Air Command's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Strategic Air Command is ranked 875th in the world and 3rd in The Allied States for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 21,097.01 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
