Union Princes

The Commonwealth of Union Princes is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.633 billion Unionists are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Unionist economy, worth 891 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 116,782 Union Dollar Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the number of judges has tripled in recent months, shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Union Princes, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. 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 214,567th in the world and 182nd in New Western Empire for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
