The Singers of the Endless Song of The Unity Sisters is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Karen with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.514 billion Unitarins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Jerusalem. The average income tax rate is 76.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unity Sistersian economy, worth 583 trillion Royel Unities a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 165,954 Royel Unities, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, it is mandatory for actors to exit stage left, married couples must call each other "darling" or risk a fine, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Unity Sisters's national animal is the Canary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lunain.

The Unity Sisters is ranked 68,534th in the world and 5th in the city without end for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,514.71 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
