The Dreamers of Visionary Union is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Hawke with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.868 billion Dreamers 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 relatively small, liberal, outspoken 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 7.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Visionary Dreamer economy, worth 818 trillion Silver Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 211,653 Silver Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, and there are no more heroes any more. Crime 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 46,446th in the world and 1,050th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 27.48 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
