The Holy Red Empire of Union Republica is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Johnny Dyzine with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 5.998 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 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Union Republican economy, worth 461 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 76,975 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 well-funded 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.
