The Republic of The Grand Union Kingdom is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief of Staff with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.694 billion Grand Union Kingdomians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of West Bay. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Grand Union Kingdomian economy, worth 181 trillion Solars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,305 Solars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All the world's a stage for Grand Union Kingdomian political theatrics, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Union Kingdom's national animal is the Golden Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Grand Union Kingdom is ranked 145,062nd in the world and 2nd in The Star Wars Republic for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -2 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
