The Nomadic Peoples of Interstellar Generational Starship is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by AI triumvirate of inhuman intellects with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and state-planned economy. The cynical population of 831 million Interstellar Generational Starshipians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Control Center. The average income tax rate is 60.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Interstellar Generational Starshipian economy, worth 58.9 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 70,913 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists are working on a way to automate the role of AI triumvirate of inhuman intellects, the New Interstellar Generational Starshipian Thesaurus lists "love" and "oppress" as synonyms, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Interstellar Generational Starship's national animal is the Shmoo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Interstellar Generational Starship is ranked 28,719th in the world and 1st in An Island In Space for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 913.99 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
