The Federal Republic of United States of Medford is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Jack Nelson with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, national health service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 5.447 billion Medfordians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newice. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Medfordian economy, worth a remarkable 1,121 trillion Medford Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 205,911 Medford Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Newice for fear of causing a fuss, they say that Medfordians made a dessert and called it peace, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Medford's national animal is the Medford, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church Of Medford.

United States of Medford is ranked 1,682nd in the world and 79th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,623.3 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
