The Allied States of Contact Paper is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 30.438 billion Contact Paperians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Contact Paperian economy, worth a remarkable 1,031 trillion papers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,886 papers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Contact Paper's national animal is the flies.

Contact Paper is ranked 97,872nd in the world and 45th in Florida for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,601.95 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
