The Untied States of Eldridge Crossings is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Jay Booker with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 14.117 billion Eldridge Crossingsians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Bend. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Eldridge Crossingsian economy, worth a remarkable 2,122 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,316 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, ten-year-olds are applying for lemonade stand operator licences, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eldridge Crossings's national animal is the Cougar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Non- donominational.
