The Hegemony of Interstellar Space Corps is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Michael Youngling with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.127 billion Space Corps are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metropia. The average income tax rate is 78.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a pilot economy, worth 710 trillion Crowns a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,032 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, the number of children one can have is restricted by law, and the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Interstellar Space Corps's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Interstellar Space Corps is ranked 202nd in 10000 Islands and 10,987th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 10 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
