OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Progressive Union is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jude Connors with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 7.578 billion Progressive Unionians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Connorston. The average income tax rate is 98%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, private law firms are unheard of, and Progressive Union's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Progressive Union's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Mark.

Progressive Union is ranked 1st in Freedom and 1,444th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 48 on the Enoch Index.
