The Formerly Unified Warzones of The Green Union is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Harry Turner with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.59 billion Wage Laborers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Himmelsdorf. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wage Laborer economy, worth a remarkable 1,646 trillion Marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,035 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", the tightness of border controls in The Green Union leave a little to be desired, would-be emigrants are told "abandon all hope all ye who would exit here", and children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Green Union's national animal is the polar bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Green Union is ranked 142,001st in the world and 16th in Markion for Largest Black Market, with 168 billion Standard Monetary Units.
