Union Combine

Population36 million


The Republic of Union Combine is a small, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 36 million Union Combineans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.

The very strong Union Combinean economy, worth 2.41 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 67,075 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,688 per year while the poor average 12,569, a ratio of 19.9 to 1.

Woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, military geniuses responsible for brilliant campaigns are drummed out because they have close same-sex friends and an interest in interior design, and the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security. Crime is a serious problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Union Combine's national animal is the wolf.

Union Combine is ranked 90,662nd in the world and 3,554th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 52.21 on the Human Development Index.
