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 7.75 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.

Progressive Union's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. 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 59th in The Internationale and 55,678th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 70 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
