The Federation of The Irish-Scottish Union is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Alys Murphy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.025 billion Irish-Scottish Unionians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Irish-Scottish Unionian economy, worth 122 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,406 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation tends not to learn from its history, political loyalty is enforced by way of chemical addiction, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Irish-Scottish Unionian Navy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Irish-Scottish Union's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Irish-Scottish Union is ranked 9,123rd in the world and 232nd in The East Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 7,661.79 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
