The Local Neighborhood Crusader of The Underground Movement Union is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Lucas Stones with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 13.829 billion North Americans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seattle. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient North American economy, worth a remarkable 2,056 trillion Union Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,733 Union Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 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 109,956th in the world and 13th in Democritus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45 on the Rand Index.
