United Massachusetts

The Thomistic Republic of United Massachusetts is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Cardinal Alexander Sullivan with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.685 billion Bay Staters love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Boston. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Bay Statian economy, worth a remarkable 1,455 trillion LifeMarks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,564 LifeMarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, bargain hunters descend on disaster zones for a quick spot of grocery shopping, and in court almost every witness is a hostile witness. Crime is totally unknown. United Massachusetts's national animal is the Pug, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Massachusetts is ranked 3,134th in the world and 3rd in Right to Life for Highest Poor Incomes, with 152,281.04 Standard Monetary Units.
