The Tribal Democratic Union of Champaign is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Piper Wright with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.064 billion Tribesmen 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbana. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Champaignian economy, worth a remarkable 2,918 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 181,687 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Champaign's beaches, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and artists are pillars of society. Crime is totally unknown. Champaign's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Rastafarianism.

Champaign is ranked 129,993rd in the world and 968th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 227 billion Standard Monetary Units.
