Earthwide Union

The Republic of Earthwide Union is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, fear of technology, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 168 million Earthwide Unionians 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.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 9.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Earthwide Unionian economy, worth 9.61 trillion Purodollers a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,217 Purodollers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, and government officials raid public buildings to remove all mention of G*d or r******n. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Earthwide Union's national animal is the The Black Cat.

Earthwide Union is ranked 148,819th in the world and 773rd in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 7.24 Obesity Rate.
