Universal State Formula

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.029 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 5,854 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 729,226 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government snoops on private internet connections, the nation has declared war on all passing comets, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Universal State Formula bee, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 245,603rd in the world and 9,407th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with -927 Meters Of Sunlight.
