The United States of Wars Forever is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by CATS with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 21.892 billion Wars Foreverians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Underground Ketchup. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Wars Foreverian economy, worth an astonishing 10,566 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 482,672 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,993,256 per year while the poor average 76,843, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

Major cities are suffering under water rationing, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, it is illegal to brush crumbs off your clothing outdoors, and nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Wars Forever's national animal is the Giant enemy crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Wars Forever is ranked 169,746th in the world and 71st in Wysteria for Most Cultured, scoring -238 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
