OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of Progressive Union is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jude Connors with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 7.617 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.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', politicians constantly ring their voters to remind them how good a job they're doing, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. 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 1,682nd in the world for Best Weather, with 322 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
