Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United States of Earth Federation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by ATLAS Artificial Intelligence with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, flagrant waste-dumping, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.801 billion Terrans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. 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 7,257 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 615,001 Credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,662,633 per year while the poor average 47,255, a ratio of 77.5 to 1.

The government is lending a hand to private industry, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, insomnia is slowly turning everyone insane, and New York is a police state during international summits. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Earth Federation is ranked 178,851st in the world and 1,279th in 10000 Islands for Most Devout, with 2.17 Prayers Per Hour.
