The Dreamers of Visionary Union is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hawke with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.06 billion Dreamers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhold. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Visionary Dreamer economy, worth 896 trillion Silver Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 220,809 Silver Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

It's always rabbit season, schoolchildren learn an R-rated version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes", the tightness of border controls in Visionary Union leave a little to be desired, and eerie glow-in-the-dark cornfields give farmlands an uncanny appearance. Crime is totally unknown. Visionary Union's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Critical Thinking.

Visionary Union is ranked 178,860th in the world and 5,244th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 7.87 Effective Tax Rate.
