The Queendom of These United States of the Inner Planets is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Her Majesty Klown Peace with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.188 billion ethnic Swedes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Peacock-Angel. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming ethnically Swedish economy, worth 140 trillion US dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,553 US dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', there is a law against "filthy foreign food", the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. These United States of the Inner Planets's national animal is the peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Official Cult of LADY-COLUMBIA.

These United States of the Inner Planets is ranked 21,874th in the world and 19th in Eientei Gensokyo for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,252.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
