The Federation of Commercial Alliances is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 143 million citizens 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The strong Federation economy, worth 8.17 trillion galactic Credits a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 57,150 galactic Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,672 per year while the poor average 8,316, a ratio of 29.9 to 1.

Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, sermons are regularly interrupted by businessmen taking phone calls, 4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, and sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Commercial Alliances's national animal is the phoenix, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Commercial Alliances is ranked 178,183rd in the world and 19th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 47.56 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
