The Dictatorship of Universal union combines is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Wallace Breen with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.688 billion combines are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City 17. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.9%.

The all-consuming Universal union combinesian economy, worth 497 trillion Resins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,134 Resins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 599,695 per year while the poor average 9,222, a ratio of 65.0 to 1.

Foreign powers often deal with problems that Universal union combines can't handle, money always talks but the taboo subject of death just brings silence, the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", and an IT mega-corporation has a patent pending on the rectangle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Universal union combines's national animal is the Headcrabs, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Universal union combines is ranked 14,410th in the world and 215th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 56.02 Whatever.
