The Commonwealth of Union Princes is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.779 billion Unionists are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krieg. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unionist economy, worth 332 trillion Union Dollar Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,545 Union Dollar Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Those who investigate UFOs tend to wake up delirious on abandoned roads, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, a proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', and the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union Princes's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Union Princes is ranked 167,978th in the world and 532nd in New Western Atlantic for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 43.49 Workforce Participation Rate.
