The Sinful Dictatorship of Dear Old Uncle Sam is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 640 million Yankees are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Washington DC. The average income tax rate is 37.8%.

The all-consuming Yankee economy, worth 68.5 trillion United States Dollars a year, is mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 106,979 United States Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, large areas of Dear Old Uncle Sam are not accessible by the public, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dear Old Uncle Sam's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dear Old Uncle Sam is ranked 56,705th in the world and 92nd in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 195,145 Standard Monetary Units.
