The Federal Republic of United States of Medford is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Jack Nelson with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.434 billion Medfordians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newice. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Medfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,117 trillion Medford Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,636 Medford Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Medford Dollar mansions, city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Newice for fear of causing a fuss. 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 117,798th in the world and 5,687th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 244.03 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
