Union Princes

The Commonwealth of Union Princes is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its digital currency, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.43 billion Unionists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Unionist economy, worth 995 trillion Union Dollar Coins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,043 Union Dollar Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, and a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts. 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 229,919th in the world and 746th in Europeia for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.98 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
