The Democratic Union of The United Republic of the Red Star is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Alexander with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.519 billion Red Starians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandratopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, and the 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Republic of the Red Star's national animal is the ManBearPig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the Red Star credit.

The United Republic of the Red Star is ranked 668th in Europeia and 106,753rd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -5 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
