The Holy Red Empire of Union Republica is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Johnny Dyzine with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate population of 6.482 billion Union Republicans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union Republica. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Union Republican economy, worth 502 trillion Republica Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,543 Republica Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Union Republica to enjoy their national art, and the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union Republica's national animal is the Wombat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.
