The Adventurous Republic of Union Lysk is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sovereign with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.113 billion Union Lyskians 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 large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Torrent. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Union Lyskian economy, worth 565 trillion deniers 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 Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,666 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
A death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, a degree in Sovereign Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Union Lysk's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Nethelism.
