The Grand Duchy of The Union of the Mountain is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its national health service, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 426 million Canisians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Saint Joseph. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.7%.

The thriving Union of the Mountainian economy, worth 38.4 trillion Dinariis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,041 Dinariis, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 389,469 per year while the poor average 13,239, a ratio of 29.4 to 1.

Politicians can be condescending (which by the way means "showing an attitude of patronising superiority"), lavish state dinners in New Saint Joseph are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, Air The Union of the Mountain is rumored to receive more government funding than the Union of the Mountainian Air Force, and children are often punished for the sins of the fathers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Union of the Mountain's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Union of the Mountain is ranked 28,179th in the world and 1,003rd in Osiris for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 26 Missed References Per Hour.
