Its not terribly inaccurate but in GURPS the contemporary US is represented by a general CR of 3 as the US has a lot of freedom but a lot of incarceration as well.

Variations are products of Social Stigma and Social Status respectively not a separate C.

Some of these social stigmas very, a felony record is 10 points most places but only 5 in some states as its not available to employers and you can still vote.

Status of course operates as usual.

Gun and weapon laws are all over the map CR2 and Cr3 are most common with a few CR4 pockets

Status operates as usual for places where there are no noble titles at least.

It'd probably be more simualtionist to not buy Status direcetly in the US. You get it free from Wealthy or higher and everything else is some form of Reputation. "Member of a famous family" being one of the Reps and at this point it probably wouldn't matter if we were talking Kennedy or Kardashian.

I suppose one could be pessimistic and call it an optional aspect of increased cost of living. Bribes and behind closed doors methods of avoiding consequences of pesky law breaking. All effectively granting an improved personal CR for certain categories.
