The Federal Republic of United States of Medford is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Von George with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 3.503 billion Medfordians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newice. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Medfordian economy, worth 670 trillion Medford Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,336 Medford Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, voting is voluntary, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, and the internet has been placed under government control. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Medford's national animal is the Medford, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church Of Medford.

United States of Medford is ranked 21,634th in the world and 689th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 670 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
