The Commonwealth of Union Princes is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.806 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, socially-minded, 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 93.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Unionist economy, worth 708 trillion Union Dollar Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,048 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 3,334th in the world and 12th in New Western Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 118.51 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
