The Imperium of Unionized Socialist Workers is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Imperator with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.251 billion Unionized Socialist Workersians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Architect. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.

Workers have seized control of the economy, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, and traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Unionized Socialist Workers's national animal is the Gray wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Totalitarianism, and its currency is the Labour voucher.

Unionized Socialist Workers is ranked 47th in Lazarus and 1,037th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 52 on the Enoch Index.
