The Corporatocracy of Commerce Federation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tom Ford with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.504 billion Federateses are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of CENTCOM. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Federationian economy, worth a remarkable 1,841 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 175,332 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 511,471 per year while the poor average 47,491, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, new pilots are regularly reminded that they are more expendable than their planes, and the freedom to be free is always just out of reach. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commerce Federation's national animal is the Bullhead Catfish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Consumerism.

Commerce Federation is ranked 16,116th in the world and 456th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 283.65 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
