The Dreamers of Visionary Union is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hawke with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.961 billion Dreamers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skyhold. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Visionary Dreamer economy, worth 312 trillion Denariis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,168 Denariis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

There's no representation without taxation, builders across Visionary Union are blocked up with orders for new public loos, the doctor has cold hands, and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Visionary Union's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Critical Thinking.

Visionary Union is ranked 110,126th in the world and 3,129th in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 14.1 on the Hayek Index.
