The Republic of Universal State Formula is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.757 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 average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 2,970 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 624,369 Standard Monetary Units, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, and the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook. 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 4,090th in the world and 241st in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.32 on the Human Development Index.
