The Empire of the Union States

Population411 million


The Empire of The Empire of the Union States is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 411 million Empire of the Union Statesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Empire of the Union Statesian economy, worth 25.9 trillion deniers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 63,073 deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Homophobia is off the menu, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, Leader's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Empire of the Union States's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Empire of the Union States is ranked 184,931st in the world and 6,637th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 10.57 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
