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 pith helmet sales, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.924 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newice. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Medfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,228 trillion Medford Dollars a year, is 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 207,313 Medford Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engine room hooch is the drink of choice among the nation's navy, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, and the government is avowedly secular. 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 62,071st in the world and 2,727th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 2,983.1 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
