The Hibernian Kingdom of Federalist Unions is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The High King with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, enslaved workforce, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.988 billion Federalists are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federalist City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Federalist Unionsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,745 trillion Federalist Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 174,712 Federalist Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,161,854 per year while the poor average 10,024, a ratio of 115 to 1.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, pregnant hitchhikers with signs requesting rides to "competent care" are a common sight on Federalist Unionsian roads, sofas are perpetually on sales that Must End Soon, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Federalist Unions's national animal is the Nuke, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Federalist Unions is ranked 201,539th in the world and 4th in The Democratic Commonwealth for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 48.6 Whatever.
