The Ascendency of The Union Empire is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by First Imperator Glorian Rahl with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.521 billion Unionists enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imryr. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 75.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Union Empirean economy, worth 782 trillion Taals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 141,699 Taals, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 510,576 per year while the poor average 28,120, a ratio of 18.2 to 1.

Celebrities sit helplessly as they are labeled "pompous womples" by First Imperator Glorian Rahl, rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, and the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Union Empire's national animal is the Lupus Aureum, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Union Empire is ranked 182,390th in the world and 938th in 10000 Islands for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -6 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
