The Colony of Union Station is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.117 billion Union Stationians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.
The strong Union Stationian economy, worth 70.6 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 63,205 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 194,603 per year while the poor average 15,857, a ratio of 12.3 to 1.
The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, and lending firms are subject to strict government regulations. Crime is a serious problem. Union Station's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
