The Community of Union Card Reserves is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, devout population of 1.368 billion Unionists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Force. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Union Card Reservesian economy, worth 85.7 trillion Renecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 62,641 Renecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mysterious black helicopters menace farmers to ensure compliance with straitjacketing agricultural policies, legislators toe the party line lest the Sergeant-at-Arms decide to conduct "truncheon practice" on the backbench, back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation, and academics are questioning the quality of the nation's newly-reprinted science textbooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union Card Reserves's national animal is the Renegalle, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Union Card Reserves is ranked 122,630th in the world and 6th in Zone for Most Extreme, scoring 17.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
