(NaturalNews) In case you haven't noticed, a grand delusion has bewitched the United States, where constant pro-USA rhetoric and gooey sentiments about being fortunate enough to live in "the greatest country on Earth" have blinded many Americans from recognizing and acknowledging the reality staring them in the face: that society is crumbling at an unprecedented rate and that the country has been taken over by crooks and lunatics who are robbing the people blind and stealing their livelihoods with little resistance.

Widespread obesity, chronic illness, rampant government corruption, an increasingly oppressive police state -- these and many other characteristics of societal decay in America are all around us, and worsening by the day, and yet millions of people are blissfully living their mundane lives as if nothing is wrong. They apparently haven't been following any of the trends showing that America is now the fattest, sickest and arguably the most naive nation on the planet.

"The reality is that the United States is in a deep state of decline, and it is getting harder to deny that fact with each passing day," wrote Michael Snyder in a recent report about the subject on ZeroHedge.com. "Mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually and financially we are a train wreck."

America: the fattest, sickest nation on the planet

Citing recent Gallup-Healthways poll data, Snyder explains that, when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight, Americans are dead last in the developed world. Only one U.S. state, it turns out, Montana, currently has an obesity rate under 20 percent, while 11 states currently have an obesity rate exceeding 30 percent. Meanwhile, the national obesity average increased from 26.2 percent in 2012 to 27.1 percent in 2013.

With obesity comes poor health, which often manifests itself as heart disease, diabetes and early death. This helps explain why the U.S. spends far more money per capita on healthcare than any other nation in the world -- average healthcare costs for an obese person are over $1,300 more annually compared to the costs for a non-obese person.

Land of the drugged, home of the slaves

Let's face it: Honest information about health is hard to come by in America, at least from conventional sources. The mainstream media is too busy promoting pharmaceutical interests with its advertising to teach people about how to truly eat healthy -- yes, saturated fats are good for you and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) should be avoided like the plague -- which is why nearly 70 percent of the country is currently taking at least one prescription drug.

"Americans spend more than 280 billion dollars on prescription drugs each year," writes Snyder. "According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, doctors in the United States write more than 250 million prescriptions for antidepressants each year. ... Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants than children in Europe are."

America also holds the title for incarcerating the largest percentage of its own people, often for the pettiest of crimes. Based on the latest available data, about 715 people out of every 100,000 are currently being held in prison cages across the country -- Russia, on the other hand, which is constantly being demonized by the American media, has an incarceration rate of 584 people per 100,000.

"America has the highest incarceration rate and the largest total prison population in the entire world by a wide margin," adds Snyder. "In America, we even put 81-year-old women in prison for feeding the birds."
