The Union of Workers Councils

Population831 million

CapitalFederal District

Currencylabor voucher

The Republic of The Union of Workers Councils is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 831 million Councilites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Federal District. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Union of Workers Councilsian economy, worth 47.7 trillion labor vouchers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 57,381 labor vouchers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, nude art is becoming wildly popular, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Union of Workers Councils's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Union of Workers Councils is ranked 67,986th in the world and 3,203rd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 54.9 on the Human Development Index.
