The Commonwealth of Progressive Union is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jude Connors with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 8.146 billion Progressive Unionists 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.

All news sources are under strict government control, birth rates have hit an all-time low, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. 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 RadioStar Region and 116,325th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
