The Allied States of Union thugs is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical population of 22.309 billion Union thugsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Union thugsian economy, worth 712 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,955 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union thugs's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Union thugs is ranked 176,055th in the world and 36th in Florida for Most Developed, scoring 52.08 on the Human Development Index.
