The United Stratocratic States of The Strategic Air Command is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by General Curtis LeMay with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.45 billion Airmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Offutt Air Force Base. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient SAC economy, worth an astonishing 15,080 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 775,341 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,293,905 per year while the poor average 70,462, a ratio of 60.9 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, kids only know what plants are because they've seen them on the television, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and cities are engulfed by smog. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Strategic Air Command's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Strategic Air Command is ranked 23rd in the world and 1st in The Allied States for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 775,341.92 Standard Monetary Units.
