The Thomistic Republic of United Massachusetts is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cardinal Alexander Sullivan with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.72 billion Bay Staters 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Boston. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bay Statian economy, worth a remarkable 1,461 trillion LifeMarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,611 LifeMarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, and in court almost every witness is a hostile witness. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Massachusetts's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Massachusetts is ranked 4,400th in the world and 27th in Right to Life for Most Devout, with 3,766.44 Prayers Per Hour.
