The United Federation of Interstellar Planets is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Robert McKinley with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.254 billion Federals enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Defense, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Angeles. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Federal economy, worth a remarkable 4,145 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 141,696 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumour has it President Robert McKinley needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes. Crime is totally unknown. Interstellar Planets's national animal is the Tiberian bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Interstellar Planets is ranked 3,874th in the world and 2nd in The Local Cluster for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.45 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
