The United States of Earth Federation is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by ATLAS Artificial Intelligence with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, vat-grown people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 7.618 billion Terrans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New York. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Terran economy, worth a remarkable 3,611 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 474,127 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,711,036 per year while the poor average 40,100, a ratio of 67.6 to 1.
Inheritance tax has recently been abolished, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, ATLAS Artificial Intelligence panders to nontraditional families, and elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Earth Federation's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
