The White Pearly Heavens of Finely Unionized Network is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Alpha and The Omega with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.577 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Kingdom of Heaven. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Celestial economy, worth a remarkable 1,637 trillion Rupees a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,357 Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 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 Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Way The Truth and The Life.

Finely Unionized Network is ranked 25,560th in the world and 1,197th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 112,357.24 Standard Monetary Units.
