The Federal Republic of The Highland Union is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 514 million Highlanders hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warwick. The average income tax rate is 37.9%.
The very strong Highlandic economy, worth 42.1 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,857 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
The Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, foreign musicians that Leader dislikes are turned away at the border, and the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Highland Union's national animal is the gryphon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
