The Crown Realms of The Green Union is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Interim KP Government with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.69 billion Loyalists love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Himmelsdorf. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Loyalist economy, worth a remarkable 2,683 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 143,591 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Himmelsdorf, fishing crews are regularly interrogated by surprisingly violent environmentalists, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. 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 139,406th in the world and 16th in Markion for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -1 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
