The United States of Super Americana is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Raymond Ames Spruance with a fair hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.984 billion Super Americans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Super American economy, worth 568 trillion US dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 190,387 US dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast, new urban roads are threatening city parks, supervisors in Super Americana commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, and the nation's biggest export is stupidity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Super Americana's national animal is the Super bald eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Super Americana is ranked 91,958th in the world and 4,482nd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,222.36 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
