The Dictatorship of The Union of Bellum is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its deadly medical pandemics, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 291 million Bellumians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maplelyn. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bellumian economy, worth 33.8 trillion Lucas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 116,027 Lucas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,283 per year while the poor average 1,548, a ratio of 677 to 1.

Artists are pillars of society, The Union of Bellum recently decided against having a capital city, citizens brought into court for parking violations are never heard from again, and Scout campfire sing-a-longs tend to focus on the evils of antitrust legislation. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Union of Bellum's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Union of Bellum is ranked 187,969th in the world and 2nd in The World Powers of Terra for Largest Populations, with 291 million Capita.
