The Federal Republic of UnitedLandOfThePeople is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 512 million Unionians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Jamesburg. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming UnitedLandOfThePeoplean economy, worth 49.1 trillion Union Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is 95,814 Union Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UnitedLandOfThePeople's national animal is the Bald Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

UnitedLandOfThePeople is ranked 192,684th in the world and 7,976th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.3 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
