The Colony of Greatunited is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 417 million orthodoxes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Ivan of Rila. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Greatunitedian economy, worth 36.7 trillion prayers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 88,030 prayers, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Greatunitedian language, geosynchronous satellites are now manned by unpaid interns, bread-gangs raid restaurant waste bins to stockpile uneaten rolls, and ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greatunited's national animal is the seraphim, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greatunited is ranked 169,796th in the world and 4th in Orthodoxy for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -1.18 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
