Universal State Formula

Population8.043 billion

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.043 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 5,871 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 729,952 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe, rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear, 90% of active duty USFAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 238,311th in the world and 9,026th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 29.2 Whatever.
