The Commonwealth of Progressive Union is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jude Connors with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 8.387 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, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Connorston. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The strong Progressive Unionistic economy, worth 885 trillion Marks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 105,639 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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.

Progressive Union is ranked 1st in RadioStar Region and 1,447th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,587.2 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
