The Federal Republic of United States of Medford is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Von George with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 3.882 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 Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Newice. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Medfordian economy, worth 771 trillion Medford Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 198,816 Medford Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The suicide rate mysteriously skyrockets during census years, the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, and street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by. 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 117,527th in the world and 6,085th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.44 on the Rand Index.
