The Dead Nation of United Island States of Southeast Asia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Michael H Frederick with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.18 billion United Islanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Basset City. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Islander economy, worth 524 trillion Asian-American Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 125,364 Asian-American Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one United Island States of Southeast Asia" at foreigners, court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, a few people seem to spend their whole time complaining, and signs stating "You Must be This Tall to Enter" have started appearing outside retirement homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Island States of Southeast Asia's national animal is the Basset Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of The Hound.

United Island States of Southeast Asia is ranked 804th in the world and 94th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 939.73 Bank.
