The Federation of Industrial Unions is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 306 million Wobblies hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haywood. The average income tax rate is 40.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Union economy, worth 32.2 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, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. 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 an impressive 105,231 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, and beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Industrial Unions's national animal is the wildcat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Industrial Unions is ranked 7,080th in the world and 2nd in The Social Liberal Union for Fattest Citizens, with 19.53 Obesity Rate.
