The Union-Venitor of Taradua of The Greater Western Union is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rando Brazilian dude with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.763 billion Rayoneki have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of V*ncence City Cartography District. The average income tax rate is 12.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rayoneki economy, worth 204 trillion Maps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,949 Maps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Western Union's national animal is the Bucket Tool, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Secularism.

The Greater Western Union is ranked 42,980th in the world and 25th in Callista for Most Patriotic, with 21.89 flags saluted per person per day.
