The Empire of The Unified Collective is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Disciple of Eden with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 18.955 billion Collectivistas 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, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Hub. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Collectivist economy, worth a remarkable 4,828 trillion bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an amazing 254,724 bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, freedom is never freely given — only when the alternative is too expensive, every school is receiving a brand new eraser, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Unified Collective's national animal is the Aquila, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Unified Collective is ranked 258th in the world and 2nd in Balder for Lowest Crime Rates, with 215.33 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
