The Hyper Democratic Union of The Underground Movement Union is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Lucas Stones with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 11.04 billion North Americans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seattle. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North American economy, worth a remarkable 1,511 trillion Union Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 136,898 Union Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Fake beard sales are on the rise amongst female commuters, worried-looking neonatal nurses are being deployed in place of SWAT teams during dangerous drug busts, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, and imprisonment is the leading cause of disownment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Underground Movement Union's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Canadian Orthodox Church.

The Underground Movement Union is ranked 170,965th in the world and 45th in Democritus for Most Inclusive, scoring 8.83 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
