The Toppat Clan Dominion of Unified Democratic Europe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Reginald Copperbottom with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.19 billion Cyborg-Europeans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Airship. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cyborg-European economy, worth 355 trillion top hats a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 162,393 top hats, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,465,068 per year while the poor average 2,196, a ratio of 667 to 1.

Infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark, cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Cyborg-European Liberator", and home education can sometimes be a load of bullocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Unified Democratic Europe's national animal is the commie, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Viciebskajanism.

Unified Democratic Europe is ranked 223,244th in the world and 85th in Bluecrown Keep for Least Corrupt Governments, with 38.59 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
