The Theocracy of Heilige Unie is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by de Paus with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.525 billion Heilige Unieans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baarn. The average income tax rate is 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Heilige Uniean economy, worth 285 trillion Gilders a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,024 Gilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Heilige Unie's national animal is the Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Heilige Unie is ranked 7,518th in the world and 360th in Osiris for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 7,074.62 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
