CurrencyUnited Provinces Dollar

The Federal Republic of The United Provinces of North America is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Franklin Delano Roosevelt with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.927 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 80.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Provinces of North American economy, worth 177 trillion United Provinces Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,295 United Provinces Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dancing with your first cousin is a misdemeanor, the Father of the House has been in office just shy of a fortnight, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, 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. The United Provinces of North America's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

The United Provinces of North America is ranked 7,699th in the world and 85th in The Free Nations Region for Most Influential, scoring 7,004 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
