The Federal Republic of Islands of unity is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by henry farkman with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.273 billion Islanders love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of central island. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The all-consuming unityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,154 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 139,521 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Works of historical fiction contain a surprising lack of historical figures, most ambassadors from Islands of unity retire only a few years after being appointed, the tax department is having withdrawal symptoms, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Islands of unity's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Islands of unity is ranked 15,240th in the world and 283rd in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,154 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
