The Krell Wonders of Altair 4 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Doctor Edward Morbius with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 3.538 billion Expeditionists have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Krell Underground Machine Complex. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Krell economy, worth 202 trillion Federation Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,368 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Krell bee, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Krell language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Altair 4's national animal is the Id Monster, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Altair 4 is ranked 131,302nd in the world and 117th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 438.04 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
