The United States of Earth Federation is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by ATLAS Artificial Intelligence with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, digital currency, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 13.439 billion Terrans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. 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 8,694 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 Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 646,955 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,756,191 per year while the poor average 26,822, a ratio of 177 to 1.

Road rage is rarer but more terminal now that many people drive fully-operational battle tanks to work, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, hundreds of teenagers die every year at the Terran Hungry Games, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Earth Federation's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Earth Federation is ranked 22nd in the world and 2nd in 10000 Islands for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,064.18 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
