The Dreamers of Visionary Union is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hawke with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.261 billion Dreamers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, 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 26.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Visionary Dreamer economy, worth 161 trillion Denariis a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,781 Denariis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, Prime Minister Hawke's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, and pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Visionary Union's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Visionary Union is ranked 20,223rd in the world and 1,047th in Osiris for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.48 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
