Straight Union

Population220 million


The People's Republic of Straight Union is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its digital currency and daily referendums. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 220 million Straight 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 relatively small government prioritizes Spirituality, with Education, Welfare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Industry and Defense are ignored. The average income tax rate is 15.1%.

The Straight Unionian economy, worth 12.1 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 55,002 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, a policy of plausible deniability helps protect the government from athletic doping scandals, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Straight Union's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Straight Union is ranked 203,372nd in the world and 4,811th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 16.2 billion Standard Monetary Units.
