The National Republic of The Outer Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Alexis Dunford with a fair hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 3.426 billion Outer Unionians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Founder's Capital. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Outer Unionian economy, worth 386 trillion Unions a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,932 Unions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, treason is relative, and the universal wage level is set by dividing GDP by the number of citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Outer Union's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Path of the Light.

The Outer Union is ranked 250,376th in the world and 143rd in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -17.18 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
