The White Pearly Heavens of Finely Unionized Network is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Alpha and The Omega with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.45 billion Angels are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Kingdom of Heaven. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Celestial economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 trillion Rupees a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 111,552 Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, politicians have literally dirty hands from their extracurricular activities, and a new religious movement claims that people's souls are stored in phosphorous. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Finely Unionized Network's national animal is the Seraphim, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Way The Truth and The Life.

Finely Unionized Network is ranked 644th in the world and 457th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 192 Valid Endorsements.
