The Federal Republic of UnitedLandOfThePeople is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 547 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, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Jamesburg. The average income tax rate is 34.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient UnitedLandOfThePeoplean economy, worth 55.1 trillion Union Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 100,784 Union Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. 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.

UnitedLandOfThePeople is ranked 35,691st in the world and 1,781st in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,152.84 Tourists Per Hour.
