The Federal Republic of UnitedLandOfThePeople is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its parental licensing program, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 483 million 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Jamesburg. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming UnitedLandOfThePeoplean economy, worth 45.0 trillion Union Dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 93,182 Union Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, no one knows how to tie a reef knot, moonshine has made a resurgence, and cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. UnitedLandOfThePeople's national animal is the Bald Eagle.

UnitedLandOfThePeople is ranked 129,965th in the world and 2,880th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 228 billion Standard Monetary Units.
