The National Republic of The Outer Union is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President May Isabelle Lopez with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.571 billion Outer Unionians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Founder's Capital. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Outer Unionian economy, worth 538 trillion Unions a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,822 Unions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government loves seeing the little people fight, sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street, foreign workers are flooding in as Unions flood out, and kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Outer Union's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Path of the Light.

The Outer Union is ranked 22,454th in the world and 61st in The Free Nations Region for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.32 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
