The Union of Central Argus of The Federal United Republic is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.763 billion Argusians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Argusian economy, worth 191 trillion Argusian Francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 108,670 Argusian Francs, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 587,242 per year while the poor average 10,416, a ratio of 56.4 to 1.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, and abortions are routinely performed in The Federal United Republic's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Federal United Republic's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Federal United Republic is ranked 208,614th in the world and 151st in The Western Isles for Most Politically Free, scoring 9.86 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
