The Federation of United Tanks is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Walton Abrams with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 2.371 billion Federates enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legion City. The average income tax rate is 50.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Armor Piercing economy, worth 292 trillion Köhns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 123,264 Köhns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, farmers have taken to hunting billionaires who encroach on their land, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Tanks's national animal is the Crimson Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

United Tanks is ranked 13,331st in the world and 28th in Sonindia for Smartest Citizens, with 77.83 Quips Per Hour.
