Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Armed Republic of The Union of Liberty is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the President with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.392 billion Know Nothing Libertyians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union City. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Union of Libertyian economy, worth 917 trillion dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 97,726 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the law is more interested in punishing crime than preventing it, people find it hard to relate to soldiers because of the dehumanising masks they wear, and the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Union of Liberty's national animal is the bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

The Union of Liberty is ranked 72,688th in the world and 3,154th in Lazarus for Largest Black Market, with 331 billion Standard Monetary Units.
