The United Provinces of Red Ion is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Chancellor Marko Drals with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.201 billion Red Ionians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Karl city. The average income tax rate is 38.9%.

The thriving Red Ionian economy, worth 80.9 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 67,392 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Horse Dung" has been declared a national treasure, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Ion's national animal is the horse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Red Ion is ranked 16,777th in the world and 3rd in Deep Storage for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,808.69 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
