The APSIAman of Nationalist Gold Union is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leonard Roberts with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.218 billion NGUmen are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of APSIA Discord Server. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.8%.

The frighteningly efficient NGU economy, worth a remarkable 2,694 trillion telegram stamps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 263,714 telegram stamps, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,492,596 per year while the poor average 22,829, a ratio of 65.4 to 1.

Children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night, no animal is considered endangered if there's another that looks kind of like it, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Leonard Roberts on Nationalist Gold Union's coulrophobia epidemic, and Snapgram-filtered portraits adorn the walls of stately homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nationalist Gold Union's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Nationalist Gold Union is ranked 120,347th in the world and 34th in APSIA for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 22.82 Effective Tax Rate.
