The Confederacy of The Faroe Union is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Louise Róbertsson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.726 billion Faroans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tórshavn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The powerhouse Faroan economy, worth 560 trillion Faroe Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 97,944 Faroe Pounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 372,299 per year while the poor average 17,867, a ratio of 20.8 to 1.

Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, and Tesco was recently named as the new national treasurer. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Faroe Union's national animal is the Eurasian Oystercatcher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The Faroe Union is ranked 20,650th in the world and 3rd in United Federation of the Blanji Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,756.52 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
