The Empire of The Greater Western Union is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 314 million Italians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 8.4%.

The very strong Italian economy, worth 22.2 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 70,643 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, and athletes and street criminals compete for solid steel baseball bats. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. The Greater Western Union's national animal is the Red Cardinal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Greater Western Union is ranked 54,243rd in the world and 32nd in The Vincence Empire for Best Weather, with 114 Meters Of Sunlight.
